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.
