From memory, there _was_ a program posted that spat text out from
bookreader documents - it got squished, DEC claimed the format was
proprietry, or something. This was maybe a year or two ago. I think
DECwrite can read and write bookreader files, but thats a $$$ option.
Who knows, DEC just put all their info on gatekeeper onto the Web, maybe
they will write something like this and release it? (Yeah, right...)
