Here's where I'm at with using lua filters inside of Pandoc. The script is 
attached. It can be invoked by:

   pandoc  -f html -t TW5.lua myfile.html  -o myfile.tid 


   env basename="/mylocaldir/" pandoc  -f html -t TW5.lua myfile.html  -o 

... if you want to specify a basename file to be appended to links -- not 
that it does much good with Wikipedia links since they seem to use some 
internal linking mechanism.

I left <spans> as html since TW has no way of doing nested spans and 
lua-filters doesn't seem to have a way to tell you when you're inside a 
nested span. As you can see from the screen shot, without the right classes 
and context,  the output from WP may not play nicely inside of TW.

Probably someone would need to tailor the script for whatever platform 
they're looking at.  

This is very beta. Not sure if it's worth pursuing further, but it was 
interesting. Probably adding a template wrapper so that the resulting file 
is a draggable tid would be a next step.
