I have just joined this list, having downloaded LFS yesterday.
I've got it up and running, and was thinking about converting the hints to
HTML myself, though I would probably not use sed.

If you're interested in a shell script to do the conversion, I could have
it in a day or so.

Let me know of any special requirements, and I can get to work right away.
