Re: [xml-dev] XMP to XML translation?

Is there something here that might help?


What I found with the flat XMP structure is that 
it was too restrictive for me to include my own 
XML as marked up XML ... I ended up including it 
as escaped text and I wrote a stylesheet to 
translate the escaped text into the embedded XML instance.

In my case it is an embedded UBL document found in the XMP content.

My package includes a Python application for 
extracting the XMP content from the PDF file.

I hope this helps somewhat, though it isn't exactly what you were asking for.
