    1. Not more documentation than what you find here? What do you get in the html files, what is not expected ? You can catch me on twitter @ehougaard if you want to show me the output ?

  1. Hi Erik,
    This seems to be just the Tool I’ve been looking for for a very long time. I have it mostly running fine – only one challenge left (for now).
    When I generate the .htm files and push the to the server, Danish characters are shown incorrectly. If I open the .htm file in NotePad and save it again without changing anything, the Danish characters are shown correctly. Do you have any idea what goes wrong in the generation of the html-files.
    But thanks for taking the time to post a great tool!
