htp: an HTML pre-processor

Htp was intended as a HTML pre-processor. It is able to preprocess HTML, XHTML, XML and CSS files (htp could process any text based files). Its purpose is to assist you to maintain a consistent "look" over an entire set of web pages. This is done by allowing you to define your own tags as abbreviations for sets of standard HTML tags.

This site provides an on-line version of the reference manual, together with the option to download the program. In addition it includes the htp SourceForge project link and information about the original author and previous maintainers.

How to get htp release 1.18

Now htp is a SourceForge project. The release comes with first new features and improvements since September 1996 (see the history for more information). You can download it from the sourceforge file server.

The htp reference manual is available online. The entire htp source used to produce the reference manual is also present in the source distribution and provides a good series of examples. You can also download a the prebuild manual from the sourceforge file server.

Previous htp release 1.12

We currently can not provide versions for all the operating systems that were supported in earlier versions. So you should have a look at the previous htp homepage maintained by Robert King. We tried to contact Robert King but did not succeed.
