      7 *tttml* is a simpler alternative to the markdown format.  It is focused on
      8 maintaining well-formatted plain text documents that look good enough to be
      9 published without conversion.
     10 
     11 This is an awk implementation and converts documents in two steps:
     12 
     13 - the formatter fix the input if needed
     14 
     15 - the converters read this well-formatted input

     21 This is the formatter part.  It takes a less rigid format (like markdown "lazy"
     22 forms) as input that may contain errors and fix them up as much as it is
     23 possible.  It only print well formated output.

     27 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     28 
     29 This is a converter.  It takes a well-formatted document and convert it to the
     30 target format, in this case a gophermap: It converts the links and replace some
     31 ASCII by equivalent prettier UTF-8 symbols.
     32 
     33 It is easy to convert a gophermap into an HTML document.  gophermap-html [1]
     34 does this.
