Text Monkey PRO is a clever program that cleans up ugly, over-quoted email text. The program also includes 40+ other handy functions. Text Monkey operates on text as it resides on the Windows clipboard, so it extends the functionality of every program you use.
Example 1: You just received an important email, but it's been forwarded and quoted so many times it's almost impossible to read. With Text Monkey, cleanup is a snap: just copy the message to the clipboard and paste back the cleaned text. How could it be so simple? Text Monkey senses when messy email text has been copied to the clipboard and cleans the text automatically, or upon your confirmation.
Example 2: You have several paragraphs of text that you need to publish as a web page on short notice. Simply copy the text to the clipboard, click a button in Text Monkey, and you'll find that all the appropriate tags have been added to make a legal HTML document. (Text Monkey also handles the opposite case: it can remove HTML tags from a web document so that only the readable text remains.)
Example 3: You're editing a list of items in the memo field of a large application. You realize that you'd like to number the list (or sort it, or delete duplicates, or indent it, or convert its character case, or...). Not to worry: just copy the text to clipboard, click a button in Text Monkey, and paste back the result.
In addition to email clean-up, Text Monkey Pro includes dozens of other useful functions, all related to cleaning, formatting, or filtering text. Most of its functions require the click of just a single button. One button converts plain text to an HTML document, applying all the tags necessary to preserve formatting and create a web-publishable document. Other commands are available to sort, auto-number, delete blank lines, delete duplicate lines, count occurrences of strings, convert tabs to spaces, perform case conversions, encode/decode special HTML characters, and more.

This program will convert a book in text format into HTML files containing a separate file for the Table of Contents, and each chapter, links from the TOC to each chapter, and links at the end of each chapter to the next chapter.
Custom Body properties may be set for all the files created, a tables may be added as a container for the body of the book, user-defined table properties and font properties may be set as required.
The output files of this program are as close as possible to the format of the text file they are created from, Text is indented where required, line breaks and paragraph breaks are inserted as per the text file.
The conversion process, once the body, table and font properties are set, can take as little as 2.2 seconds on a 300kB file, but can take considerable longer on files with roman numerals as chapter numbers, an 800kB file with roman numerals took 86 seconds on my machine.
The demonstration version works exactly the same as the full version but will only convert the first 5000 lines and will add a comment to the end of each file asking you to register.
