    Merge HTML files

    I have a folder full of HTML files (Zen sayings) that I want to merge together into one HTML page. Anyone know of any free software that will do this?

    Yeah, I found this before I posted. What a WASTE! The trial only merges PARTS of the files. Then you get a message that if you want full merge, you have to buy the product immediately. Sobolsoft has a huge selection of small utility programs. I wouldn't take anything from them nor recommend them to anyone based on this experience.

    Sorry, I hadn't actually tried it myself.

    Re: Merge HTML files

    If all you are trying to do is to merge a number of lines or paragraphs, you can do it depending on the layout (and quantity!) of the HTML in the files with something as simple as Notepad, as has been stated above, but for a WYSIWYG merge I would open up two copies of the <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> KompoZer (partial bug fix to VNU), which is a "web page authoring system", meaning you can edit in both browser mode and in the raw HTML interchangeably, and cut from one window and paste to the other.

    One downside is that it can mess horribly with your HTML code by adding spaces and blank lines where you might not want them (possibly you don't care, since it doesn't affect the way the browser presents it?!) and after using KompoZer I often reload the HTML file into Notepad++ and use its HTMLTidy function.

    There is also a command-line version of HTMLTidy, but even I, a command line enthusiast, found its configuration file too geeky!
    <font face="Script MT Bold"><font color=blue><big><big>John</big></big></font color=blue></font face=script>

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...
