DESCRIPTIONThis program uses Brad Choate's Text::Textile module to convert text in the Textile markup language into HTML. For example, it will convert ``_hi_ there'' to "<p><em>hi</em> there</p>". Textile (developed by Dean Allen of <http://textism.com> lets you quickly write simple (or not so simple) text that (a) can be read as is, and (b) turns into readable HTML.
