thanks very much...this part is more or less solved, though still getting
these errors for .doc and .pdf files (I presume bec they were not
originally .html files):
 error: htmlParseEntityRef: no name

I have added this filtering:
      	FileFilter .pdf pdftotext   "'%p' -"
	FileFilter .doc catdoc "-s8859-1 -d8859-1 %p"
	FileFilter .xls xls2csv "-s8859-1 -d8859-1 %p"

filter. You must specify a filter for anything that is not txt, html or
