To top all: it is even quite simple. For a project we had to produce MS Excel files fromXML, using XSLT. As we didn't have a clue about Microsoft formats etc we figured: why not produce this ghastly MS-HTML and see what that does for us?
If you simply save an existing Word document as HTML you get a header you can use with XSLT and then it is simply a matter of transforming your document to HTML. You'll need a couple of namespaces but they're in the saved header too. Works like a charm and even allows a lot of stuff in Excel and Word. Not sure whether it wil beat RTF feature wise but you can do a lot without having to wade through RTF specs :-) HTH, Michiel $ -----Original Message----- $ From: Stephen Clarke [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] $ Sent: vrijdag 1 maart 2002 20:52 $ To: fop $ Subject: OT:: XML -> MS Word?? $ $ $ Hi all, $ $ OK. So much for pdf. Does anyone know if there is any way of $ turning an XML $ into MS Word format? I don't think word is scriptable, is it? $ VBScript, $ perhaps? $ $ Just wondering. $ $ Sorry. The very thought is rather distastefull , isn't it. $ But who knows. $ $ See. Just for fun I did my resume in pdf using fop. But now $ everybody keeps $ asking me for the same thing in MS Word format. Argh. Very $ annoying. So I $ want to be able to change my XML and have it reflected $ automatically in both $ word and pdf. $ $ This could be a contender for the most twisted idea of all time. $ -- $ Best $ SC. $
