MARTIAL “LOL

I make another call to the LazyWeb to solve a problem I have: Turning completed Eudora messages with lots of quoted text and responses (with quotes in format=flowed sections) into basic, valid-code HTML pages with the f=f portions marked up as

<blockquote>
<p></p>
<p></p>
<p></p>
...
</blockquote>

It’s slightly tricky, as f=f is merely a display format that suppresses the > character and alters linebreaks. f=f text necessarily may enclose f=f text to an arbitrary limit (though I haven’t seen more than six levels of nesting in the last year).

Anybody want to take a crack at ’er? An AppleScript or moral equivalent would suffice.
