i guess i wouldn't mind discussing and testing and i'd still be
interested.  the word html problem is only one use case i could think
of, even if there might be some different and more specific solutions to
this one. i think i'll give the POI project, steven mentioned, a try

sounds great for me.

so, if you think you are ready to have someone test regexslt on a
specific use case (as maybe word html) tell me.

right now i am just testing without a close time frame and thinking of a
java/xsl (cocoon preferred) based solution. so there is no real hurry on
this one. 

maybe you could keep me informed concerning the state of your project...

thank you,
