Hi there, I will be working on a project to create a website from some
large MS Word files (books). I plan on using XML/XSLT so that I can
change the layout/design post facto (make it skinnable).
I'd like to know if anyone can share some experience on the best way to
prep MS Word content for XSL processing.
On of the options I'm looking at right now is loading it up in
OpenOffice and then using the DocBook export filter to manually convert
the content to simplified DocBook (which I know very little about at
this stage). Open Office also allows me to export to XHTML.
I realise this may depend on the way the Word document is prepared, but
since I haven't got a copy yet, I'm hoping it will use Word's structural
capabilities -- ie. sections/chapters whatever.
Thanks in advance.
