I have been watching this thread with not a little interest. This sounds like the West Street Consulting plug-in "InsetPlus" would be the tool of choice. Wouldn't hurt to take a look at it.

All my insets are currently unstructured FrameMaker files. The conversion would leave them as structured FrameMaker files, I suppose. If so, that means that when I export the container file as XML all the insets would be included within the XML. TO get separate XML files on export, then after I convert all the insets and container files to SFM, I need to export all the insets to XML and then open the container files and redo each inset specifying the XML file instead of the FM file. Then when I export the container file as XML, all the XML insets remain separate XML files. Is that right? So in terms of the "Source-code control" aspects of a content management system, which files are the source files, the FM files or the XML files? You can easily make either one from the other. Does it matter? Thanks Jim -----Original Message----- From: Lynne A.

How does the conversion mechanism deal with insets? Jim, Since text insets remain text insets when a document is structured, the conversion table cannot change the imported content. In particular, it cannot specify an assignment of elements within them. It can wrap a new element around them. Use the code TI: in the first column of the conversion table to specify text insets. >My second question is: When I save a structured file as XML, if the file >contains a text inset, is this reference saved as a reference in the XML >file or is the content of the inset sucked into the XML file (or do I >have a choice)? That depends on the type of text inset. An XML text inset is saved as an entity reference; other text insets are converted to text on export. --Lynne Lynne A. Price Text Structure Consulting, Inc.
