RE: [xml-dev] Fwd: Xml doubts please reply

Yes, it shouldn't be difficult to convert this to XML.
Use whatever tool you are most comfortable with. Many people would do it using Perl, or even awk. I would use XSLT. XSLT 2.0 has an unparsed-text() function that allows you to read a text file; you can then use regular expressions to extract the tags in each line, and grouping to group the lines into records. For a report of a similar but rather more complicated up-conversion exercise, see this paper:

hello sir

   i am shaji from kerala india. i am a programmer.  i hve one doubt i will explain below.

we have to devolop a literatures database. i need to include varoius features like search by author,search title,
search by publication year etc:-

so what we noramlly doing is first store all the literature details to datbase(it includes foolwing
information like author(Au),title(TI),abstract(
Ab) ,published year etc-:
in order to store  the these information we need to create one  literature entry form...and store the details via  form...
this method  is possible... it is very tedoius since we have around 6000 literaturees are there.

so is there any other method?

we are downloding these literatures from some external websites...all the literatures are in the same format
..i am sending the litertures record format(attachement)  below...please check that ...

[in that attached file TI:means title      AU means author  AB:abstract  KW means Keywords PY means publication year

please check that records...and suggest any new methods. 
can we convert it  into xml directly?

please reply
