text/plain (45 lines)

The experimental HTML to ICADD transformation service available at:

now has a Braille output option.


- only valid HTML can be transformed to Braille
- Braille is generated from the ICADD instance
- the ICADD instance is run through a down-translate filter(OmniMark) that uses
  ICADD structure & context to imbed Braille hints to the Braille transformer
- ie, this is not just a heap 'o text, but usable formatted output that tries
  to carry the structure through to the end user
- Braille looks 'funny' when viewed as text but check it out, will give you a
  feel for how it does contractions, etc.

Original announcement of html2icadd xform service is included at end of mail.

----------------------------- Note follows -----------------------------

An experimental HTML to ICADD transformation service is now available at:

A form is displayed that prompts for a URL.  An ICADD instance of the HTML 
referenced by the URL is returned.  

This form runs a ReXX program on a PC running OS/2.  The program uses the 
rxSock package to make a http connection and retrieve the HTML source for the 
given URL.  The source is then parsed and transformed by OmniMark.  If the 
original HTML document has errors, these errors will be reflected in the ICADD 

This is an experimental service and may have errors/bugs.  Please send
