Txt2tags is a GPL format conversion tool written in Python that generates HTML, XHTML, SGML, LaTeX, Man Page, MoinMoin, Magic Point and PageMaker documents from a text file with little marks.

Different from other conversion tools, it is generic, and not target-specific (as a txt2html tool). This way, you can keep just one source text file and one tool for all your formatting needs.

With txt2tags, you focuses your mind on the document CONTENT, and forget about formatting. Just let the program do this dirty job.

Here you find a "one-click", self-contained installer for Windows. For informations about txt2tags use, please, visit the official site.
