Make Ebooks Pretty with GutenMark

Although the article talks about Linux, it looks like this tool is available for Windows as well:

http://linuxbeacon.com/doku.php/articles:gutenmark

Basically, this takes the raw, rough, ugly Gutenberg text and prettifies it into a nicely formatted html document. A good start, for our masters of conversion here!

I use this tool sometimes. It is useful but the file will still need some attention. I still check all the chapter titles, inverted commas end quotation marks adjacent to emdashes.

Tested on the Mac, and this tool is fantastic. Easy to use, spits out an HTML file with only a couple of errors (easily fixed). Thanks for the heads up.
