Hi Franck,

Frank said:
The problem is that the formatted document should be editable,
and, AFAIK, there are no tools to edit PDF with standard edition level
facilities ( edition of tables, text, insertion of graphics...).

Do you know such a tool?

Didier answer:
If the goal is to have the output editable then there is this option:
a) transform the XGML/XML document into MIF with the OpenJade MIF backend
b) edit the result with framemaker.

The choice of QXP has been made because it seems to be the only tool
that both enable editing facilities and ensures professional quality for
Especially, it supports PANTONE (TM) colors and nuances, and the
insertion of graphics made by other tools with a resolution higher than
2400 dps to enable good quality prints.
It seems that there are no other tools that supports both.
Do you think there are ?

Didier answer:
I do not know if Framemaker supports your requirements.
