Along the lines of Babelfish and ValSpeak, a website that translates your copy-and-pasted input, or URI, into the famous TPPCPPC.
Credit to [waugsqueke] for the original notion, and inspired by [UnaB]'s annotation to Printer Virus. 'It would have been making them happy for a week for someone to have been ringing them up and getting them to have been coming and fixing that particular problem. In fact, they'd have been leaving it.'

Grok at sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/projects/grok/
On the downside, it's 5 Mbytes. [pottedstu, Oct 22 2001, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       While they might have had trouble writing HTML in TPPCPP, their efforts would not have been in vain.

       Actually, they would have been writing it in TPPCPPCML.

       They would have had a good point.

       I'm sure you could write one if you want. There's a Java natural language parser on sourceforge called "grok", but I couldn't get it to compile, so I can't do it, ahem. But if (hypothetically) you can get it to compile, it'll do the hard bit, finding the verbs and stuff, and you can do the rest. (Assuming it does what I think it does, which I think it does.)

Hey, it works!
