I've attached a file I received with Quark 3.32, which has sample text complete with Quark Xpress tags.
Perhaps rather than using PHP to edit a whole .qxd file, perhaps you can use it to help format some text to be imported into a template file. It's not a complete solution, but a part of one -- perhaps to be used in conhjuntion with AppleScript or Macros? (I think the later quark versions have macros)... Just to throw a complete spanner in the works, Adobe InDesign2.0 has a lot of XML capabilities, and much more integrated PDF capabilities than Quark... perhaps either an XML based solution, or a PDFLib based solution can be achieved? Considering InDesign is about 1/3rd the price of Quark, *maybe* you might want to consider other options aside from Quark.
