I would not use it for serious work. It has not been maintained since 
many years. It changes the source text when saving and overwrites your 
text. It cannot handle extern css-files.

You get a better (and valid) source text, if you use the XHTML export.
But unfortunately it transforms only very simple documents.

Kind regards
