12.18 Export in foreign buffers

The export back-ends in Org often include commands to convert selected regions. A convenient feature of this in-place conversion is that the exported output replaces the original source. Here are such functions:

org-html-convert-region-to-html
Convert the selected region into HTML.
org-latex-convert-region-to-latex
Convert the selected region into LaTeX.
org-texinfo-convert-region-to-texinfo
Convert the selected region into Texinfo.
org-md-convert-region-to-md
Convert the selected region into MarkDown.

In-place conversions are particularly handy for quick conversion of tables and lists in foreign buffers. For example, turn on the minor mode M-x orgstruct-mode in an HTML buffer, then use the convenient Org keyboard commands to create a list, select it, and covert it to HTML with M-x org-html-convert-region-to-html RET.
