Subject: RTF/SGML/HTML translation

Hi all,

this message is something like a bottle thrown to the netsea and bringing you a
calling for help : having only access to mail systems,I found very few things
about topics like the ones in the header in the maillist I've been reading till
now.
I am looking for information of all kind about the SGML and HTML standards as
well as the way to make plain text or even RTF turn into one of those above
mentioned. Is it possible, for example, to find free translators from the
educational world would they be MS Word macros, C or C++ Libraries or even
finite software...
I would like to know if someone in this list has heard about the possibilities
of indexing texts in one of the formats mentioned earlier...

Thanks to all of you who will spend some time in sending me information about
all this

Message 2: concession

Date: Mon, 27 Feb 95 13:16:41 ESconcession
From: Julie Nicole <NICOJUVM1.ulaval.ca>
Subject: concession

We are attempting to define concession: its purpose, its characteristics and
how it differs from counterargumentaion. On this matter, are there sources
other than Ducrot, Perelman, Roulet and Aristotle's rhetoric?

Thank you

Message 3: preaspirated stops

Date: Mon, 27 Feb 1995 14:12 -05preaspirated stops
From: <Mike_Maxwellsil.org>
Subject: preaspirated stops

A friend of mine has proposed an analysis of a language which uses
preaspirated stops. I'm familiar with postaspirated stops, but
preaspiration seems to be rather uncommon. Only one of several phonetics
texts I consulted mentions them, and I can't find any (other) examples of
phonological analyses using them at all. Clearly a possible alternative
analysis would be that they are in fact a sequence of "h" plus a stop
(although the "h" would have an extremely limited distribution).

Can anyone throw some light on this? Are preaspirated stops attested in
other languages?

Subject: Turkish social stratification

Can anyone direct a student of mine to any study of social stratification in
Turkey? It need not be linguistic, and it can be in Turkish (or English or
French, or German, or .....).
Thanks
