Well, converting to structure isn't trivial, but it's not impossible either. You're missing three fundamental things: * It's not enough to just convert paragraphs to elements -- usually you
have to wrap elements in elements. For example, a list might be <ul><li><p>my text</p></li></ul> You have to include that wrapping in the conversion table. * You need an EDD that maps the XML structure you have in mind over to FrameMaker formatting. If you have a DTD in mind, then maybe you can use that as a starting point for the EDD. If you're converting to a standard that Maker already supports, then an EDD is already there for you. * You have to import the EDD into your newly structured document. I recently did a webinar covering the basic workflow for converting unstructured docs to XML, and I wrote a whitepaper for Adobe on the subject -- look on the Adobe site for "The Hitchhiker's Guide to XML".
