I have a ksh script that reads data from an Oracle database and outputs it to a text file. I would like it to output data to an html file instead. How can I accomplish that?

Here is my script:

#!/usr/bin/ksh

if [ $# -gt 0 ]
then
	export ORACLE_SID=$1
	ORAENV_ASK=NO
	. oraenv
	sqlplus -s /nolog <<EOF
	connect username/pwd
	set lines 4000
	set trimspool on
	set feedback off
	set pages 0

	spool myfile.dat
	SELECT * from my_view;
	spool off
EOF

fi

It will probably need some tweaking but add the following to the sqlplus set parameters:
set markup html on

Try this:
#!/usr/bin/ksh

if [ $# -lt 1 ]
then
  echo "!Error: missing parameter 1-{sid}"
  exit 1
fi  
export ORACLE_SID=$1
ORAENV_ASK=NO
. /usr/local/bin/oraenv
sqlplus -s /nolog <<EOF
CONNECT username/pwd
SET LINES 4000 TRIMS ON FEED OFF PAGES 0
SET MARKUP HTML ON SPOOL ON HEAD "<TITLE>SQL*Plus Report</title> -
<STYLE TYPE='TEXT/CSS'><!--BODY {background: ffffc6} --></STYLE>"
SET ECHO OFF
SPO myfile.html
SELECT * FROM my_view;
SPO OFF
EOF

>>what does SPO command do?

It's short for spool off.  You only need the first few characters of a command for sqlplus to recognize it.
