I have added a 'html' target into the Vol3 Newsletter Makefile.
will run 'latex2html' (must be installed of course) and creates
the newsletter in HTML. Some fine tuning might be needed, though.
I have also added an 'ascii' target into the Vol3 Newsletter Makefile.
will run 'detex' (modify to use your preferred software) to extract
ASCII text from the original Latex files.
