In my project, I want to convert an old electric typewriter to a 
rudimentary type of printer. Because I'll be using an Arduino Uno to 
imitate the typewriter keyboard, I will have to send the commands via 
USB because the Arduino has very low EEPROM Size.

So my idea was to make a processing sketch which converts the file (I 
thought of .html because its structure is simple but it features 
formatting text, if anyone has a better idea or file format please let 
me know) into commands for the Uno.

Does anyone of you know how to open such a file and eventually 
converting it into a .txt with the commands?
