Thank you very much! This is the very same reason why I did Grutatxt; it uses exactly the same format I use when writing drafts and emails.

:-) The strange name has its origin in a bigger project, Gruta (spanish for Grotto), that was to be a big web application combining a CMS and a hierarchical notepad for workgroups, not too different from FAQ-O-Matic. 'Grutatxt' was just the text processing module. The CMS drifted to another project (with a name change), and the workgroup thing just got left into oblivion.
Anyway, I'll forward your message to the marketing department, for them to fix it ;-)
That's a great little utility!
thank you very much for that great little thing! I will use this daily from now. It was my Freshmeat discovery of the month! (The other one was how I could print during an NX/NoMachine remote session without the software actually supporting it officially -- but that's a different story...)
The "source format" is very close to the style I am writing my drafts anyway. Most of my documents start as ASCII text. I prefer it because I can easier paste it into emails, for discussions with friends. Once a draft was pretty finished, I used to add the markup with Vim. Now your tool saves me a lot of time. I like it very much... ;-)
Even greater is that you are going to add OpenOffice file format support! I am really looking forward to this!
All the best, and thanks again!
P.S.: what is the story behind the peculiar name of it? Somehow I keep thinking that grutatxt could become more popular more quickly if your "marketing department" could come up with a name that is easy to remember, spell and pronounce.... ;-)

I'm glad you find it useful. Future versions will include more output formats, as OpenOffice.org Writer documents or man pages. Stay tuned.
