 Converting e-Books to Open Formats

"Practically no tools exist now to export e-book formats to PDF or OpenDocument, the new OASIS standard used in OpenOffice.org, but this is not necessarily a big deal. Once text is in ASCII or HTML format, it easily can be moved to plain-text or PDF format by using a text browser such as w3m or programs such as html2ps. If you go this route for conversion, you are able to do it today, and because it's an open format, 20 years from now too."
