RE: Word to XML

I've just converted a couple of word documents (80 to 150 pages) to xml 
(docbook) using a product from logictran (www.logictran.com). They have an 
evaluation version online (30 days). 

The resulting xml in docbook format was quite usable with little manual cleanup.
The pictures were converted too but I decided to use the originals instead.

After the conversion I used the toolchain from Norman Walsh (nwalsh.com or 
docbook.org) to generate PDF or html. Now I'm trying his website.dtd to generate
a whole site.



PS: I have no relation with logictran besides using their product

         I believe B-Bop (www.b-bop.com) also had a good tool for Word to 
XML conversions. I've used an earlier version than they're currently 
selling, and it was really quite good.
