RE: Four LIF text conversion questions
A1. Well, THAT was fun! I just finished getting an HP-71 program running which converts HP-75 text files on disk (type E052) into standard text files (LIF1, type 0001). Why on earth does EVERY line of an HP-75 text file begin (after the 2-byte line number and 1-byte line length) with a space character?!? What a waste. But the program works. So Q1 is handled to my satisfaction. Now to convert all the HP-75 text files on all the swap disks so that anybody with Internet access can read them.

Q2 and Q4 (embedded formatting codes) should be easy to translate into HTML with a macro in a text editor or MS Word.

Q3 (converting ThinkJet graphics to image files) looks hopeless.
