A robot-based procedure is described for traversing a collection of hyperlinked documents written in HTML and converting these to the XML-compliant and well-formed XHTML representation. Transcluded chemical content invoked using or HTML calls are converted to the XHTML recommended form. Additional attributes such as title or derived chemical attributes such as a SMILES descriptor are added to improve the indexing of the resulting document collection. Conformance tests for the popular Web browsers are reported.
