The editor has to have my article in MS Word, and the end notes have to
be MS Word real notes.
I have been using xslt to make nice html formatted notes (thanks to
xsl-list help), which is more or less readable by MS Word, even though
the notes are not true notes, just formatted to look that way. But now I
need to make those live MS Word notes.
Is RTF the best way? If so, is there a good guide or tutorial on the
web? I have very simple formatting, and would really like to not get too
involved with RTF, and everything seems a little too complicated.
Also, I think that the way to go from my diacritic rich xml to RTF is to
ask for ascii output in <xsl:output ..> and then convert (with perl or
so) the entities that result to the RTF escaped unicode. Is that correct?
