Re: Book Conversion (was NTLK A Christmas Gift)

I had considered the same thing. I have converted the first Tarzan book into
the MP2k format, and it wasn't an insignificant thing. But it was worth it.
I hope, in a short while, to dedicate part of my web site to MP2k books
available by FTP. Just takes time. Knowing that there is some interest out
there motivates me a bit more.

If any one is interested in the manual method I used to translate the book I
did, let me know. I am sure someone, somewhere can write a program to do it
more easily. I haven't heard of any availability of the Newton Book source
files, but I can't imagine that someone, somewhere doesn't have them.
