   RE: [xml-dev] PDF 2 XML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I've just started taking a look but have had some very interesting results
using InDesign 2 to PDF (with the Adobe XML plugin) to XML. I haven't tried
anything to complicated yet but I like what I've seen so far. Of course the
key is structured content prior to creating the PDF. But I get the sense
that desktop publishing is just about ready to shake hands with XML.

Acrobat 5 has a plugin called XMLExtract or somethign (free from Adobe I
which attempts to extract XML.  If the document was created by a 
structured editor, such as FrameMaker+SGML, then there is a fighting chance
that the XML won't be complete crap. Does anyone have experience with it?
