I wrote this tool some months ago while developing on the xPresso publishing system (NO), and has done some rewriting this week to implement further functionality.

The Codificator now provides:
- automatic code wrapping in DC board format
- conversion of regular HTML-formatted text to DC board formatted text
- link extraction from HTML to DC board format
- auto fetch of webpages, with on-select conversion of content to DC board format.

It won't boil your coffee or knit you a warm sweater for the winter, but it may help you to be more efficient when you're online discussing politics.
