You might have an XML representation of Word files. If you wanted to convert content form an XML representation of Acrobat files, all you would need is a stylesheet to convert the XML representation of Acrobat files to the XML representation of the Word file. This process would require an XSL processor and a stylesheet and someone with no programming experience could actually execute this process (they would write the stylesheet). I think the idea of XSL is to take the programming out of the conversion process from one data-model to another. Ty;er xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
