What do I know about HTML-generation of screens?
If you go to http://www.etk.com/etkfweb/etkfweb.htm
you can see a tool that I developed for this.

A typical screen is 16-20K. I include the part of
the generated HTML below, so you can get a feeling
of what it looks like. This HTML displays equally well
on IO, Netscape, and Opera (which was quite a
challenge).

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>ETK For The Web</TITLE>
<STYLE><!--
  BODY    {background:silver}
  TD      {background:silver; color:black; font-family:"Lucida Console";
font-size:10pt}
  TD.X    {background:silver; color:silver}
  TD.T    {background:silver; color:purple}
  TD.M    {background:red; color:yellow}
  TD.U    {background:green; color:yellow}
  TD.H    {background:darkblue; color:white}
  INPUT   {background:silver; color:black; font-family:"Lucida Console";
font-size:10pt}
  INPUT.I {background:white;  color:blue}
  INPUT.O {background:silver; color:blue}
  INPUT.P {background:silver; color:black}
  INPUT.S {background:white; color:red}
  INPUT.E {background:red; color:yellow}
--></STYLE>
<SCRIPT><!--
  function f(element) {document.F1.HCURSOR.value = element.name}
  function c(element) {document.F1.HMODIFY.value = element.name}
--></SCRIPT>
