I'm a Unix person at work who's been using a Mac at home since 1980-something.  (Ditto with much of my family.)  I was thrilled when Mac OS X was introduced, because I then got the best of both worlds.  You can solve a lot of problems using bash (along with sed, grep, awk, sort, and so forth), not to mention the occasional Emacs macro.

I heartily recommend Neal Stephenson's "In the Beginning Was the Command Line", found at http://www.cryptonomicon.com/beginning.html ...

More on point: Somebody who knows some AppleScript magic might be able to create a drag-n-drop based on same.  This strikes me as something that ought to be an easy task.  However, I don't know AppleScript.

I've encountered this problem myself.  I sometimes need to patch up the HTML produced by tth.  However, it tends to cover over 90% of what I need, which is good enough.
