This is an old package. Is it really any good?

    I use this package to convert my HTML reports into text so they can emailed to users that don't support HTML in their email client. It works well with the content I deal with. I don't feel value of a package should be derived from its age if it solves the problem at hand.
      By that standard, most financial institutions should discard millions of lines of perfectly good code cause it was last touched in 1970, to deal with the 30-year T-note and Y2K. *shrugs* I know I'm not losing sleep over it ...
