Create a file (for example) with this content:
# $1: first parameter is the directory, the content of which
#     is to be displayed (current directory if not given).
# $2: second parameter is the output file (directory.html for
#     example). If none giver, result is put to standard out.

if [ -n "$2" ]; then
  exec 1>"$2" || exit 1
  exec 2>/dev/null

cd "${1:-.}" || exit 1

cat <<-THEEND
<title>Content of: ${1:-.}</title>
<ul style="font-family: monospace;">

/bin/ls -liaF | grep -v "^total" | sed 's/^\(.*\)$/  <li>\1</li>/'

cat <<-THEEND
Use it like that to have the content of /usr/share/icons stored in a file called icons.html in your home directory:
$ /usr/share/icons $HOME/icons.html
