Description Updated 2005-07-30
It can be a time consuming task to create and upload those critical "text-only" versions of your web pages to the server. Now there's an easier way-- one little script in your cgi-bin and viola! instant text only pages created in real time.
This script automatically converts pages on your site to 'text only' on the fly for those who want faster access and don't have a quick modem.
It maintains most links within the site, removing images and table tags and doesn't harm links outside of the site. Simply put a link to the script on each page, and the script does the rest. It reads the data on the page, removing non-text information.
A good way to use the script is to include a link to it in a "server side include" that goes on every page automatically. I always do this on my sites for headers, footers, middle page ads, and links. That way I can change all the information on the whole site very quickly and easily.
By adding a link to this script in your links list you can automatically convert pages to plain text.
The way the script works? It's quite simple, really. It checks to see which page it came from (unless there's a page specified for it in the URL). It opens one of these two pages and removes all the HTML tags that aren't plain content. It then redisplays the page in the browser.
This scripts needs updating in a BAD way
