I don't get the point of this app. Seems that this would be for people doing web design, which means people who already have some kind of text editor that can do this and more...

Plus, anyone doing web design would use CSS to format their list...

I really don't get it...

I've never seen one of those. I've seen apps that let you create them but not ones to convert.

Pretty ignorant review, frankly. If you don't know what an application is for, or about what needs it may address, why would you think you're qualified to share your opinion with the world? I haven't tried this app myself, but I can tell you that someone who thinks you use CSS to format lists for the web has never formatted a web page with CSS himself (or herself). CSS has nothing to do with the structure of information, but only about its presentation. A list is a structure, and you use HTML codes for expressing this.

Geez...

First of, I didn't share an opinion, I didn't even rate the app. I just said I didn't understand the use someone could have for this, I was waiting to see if someone would explain that to me (that's why I'm back here to read your prose).

You didn't even try this app so I think you should follow your own advice about sharing your opinion to the world...

As far as the other part of your lovely comment, I make a living creating standard compliant xhtml 1.0 strict + css 2 websites and if I needed to switch from a list to a drop down, I'd do a regex search/replace in my text editor (TextMate), takes about 10 sec. And regarding the format of a list, I'll be nice and teach you a little CSS:

With a ul or ol selector, you have a property called: list-style-type (and its shorthand property list-style) and among the available values for this property, you got: decimal, lower-roman, upper-roman, circle, square, etc...

CSS has indeed nothing to do with the semantic structure of a page, but then again, this app doesn't modify the structure of lists, only the format.

Who's ignorant?

How about an option to convert the list to properly formatted CSV, with newlines converted to \\n or %0A, for import to spreadsheets or databases?

blah blah
this, or that

WOuld go to...

"blah blah","this, or that"

(you can sort of do it by joining with "," but that doesn't convert newlines or convert " to ""...)

So the list would be like "item 1","item 2","item 3" ?
