Thanks, Carsten! I will look into that.

Thanks also to Wes for pointing out your org-export-generic. (It was
already on my export screen, and I only noticed it this morning.) The
problem there is that all the *bold* and /italic/ and unicode
characters and tables and things won't be converted to HTML, unless
I'm mistaken. On the other hand, I'm glad to have this brought to my
attention, as I'm sure I'll find a use for it. :)
