Perfect.  I'll merge your pull request (to have a trace that you've
submitted those), and then integrate the HTML-sourced abstracts as
you've suggested.

(I am curios to compare `lynx` text output to `pandoc`.)

BTW, and I'm referring only to abstracts, have you considered in using
one of the "plain-text"-compliant markup languages like Markdown for
this purpose?  They look almost as plain-text files, but there are
countless formaters that can output HTML.  (Markdown is not my first
choice as general "documentation" language, but for this limited
purpose it seems to be the best fit.)

Ciprian.
