My pick is Rick Geimer's beerware - it can be found at http://www.sesha.com/omlette/#rtf2xml. I've tested it in the past and found it to be very good. It leaves you with valid XML ripe for the inevitable next stage of manipulation - trying to infer the nesting. It's a great way out of RTF and into something valid. Rick kindly released this under the GNU General Public License and only requests payment if you roll it into a paying project, I think. -- Regards, Marcus Carr email: mrc@a... _______________________________________________________________ Allette Systems (Australia) email: info@a...
