On the issue of converters and conversion....
Does anyone on this list use Arbortext's Epic product? We're trying it
out but so far it seems to lean heavily towards the Docbook DTD for
technical manuals and such. The Interchange module does the Word
conversion, with the same issues mentioned here already (strict styles,
We like majix and the RTF route to conversion. Thank you Sebastian
for this scenario -
"Arial - tell Word to export HTML
- convert the HTML to XHTML with the W3C "tidy" program
- transform the XHTML to TEI with an XSLT script
but I also uses "majix" on occasion, which reads RTF and writes XML
(configurable). there are many other similar products"
