> http://users.erols.com/waynesof/bruce.htm  Haven't used it myself.
> (htms0208.zip is the name of the program.)

> (Pricelesswarehome.org lists freeware voted on by the subscribers to
> alt.comp.freeware newsgroup. Practically all the software listed is

> Windows. If you're using another operating system then you might look
> at newsgroups devoted to that OS. You might also try a google search
> e.g. "macintosh OS html stripper" or something similar. (Don't forget

> URLs devoted to the particular OS and freeware/shareware for it.
> 2.In response to a question posed by Robert Sanger -
> databases for palm pilots:
> You may want to look at the database and hobbies categories
> on http://www.freewarepalm.com. Contains listings of freeware
> for the palm pilot and other pdas. Saw a few entries for book  
> databases.
> p.s. there are other databases for palms which are not listed at this
> site. Suggest you do a google search - "freeware palm databases" - or
> something similar.
