Subject: RE: DOCBOOK-APPS: From RTF to DocBook

We (www.xyztechnologies.com) have a tool that is designed to do exactly
this - to transform Word Doc/RTF files into meaningful XML documents - one
of our target formats is DocBook.

The process is that we discard "unnecessary information" that isn't really
relevant to the XML format (as is the case with DocBook). As was mentioned
in other threads, there may need to be some adjustments to the final
format - the goal of our tool is to get you 80-90% there (and in some cases
100% there) and we provide the "debugging" tools to help you "Fix any
issues" - with the final document(s).  We also let you tweak the set of
rules (so you could add your own custom elements into the transformation).

This seems to be what you need.
The main "catch" is that our tool is not yet shipping - we are about to
release our first beta, and are looking for beta sites to test the tool
against real source content.  If you are interested, please contact me at

Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: From RTF to DocBook


I am looking for a good tool able to convert from Doc/RTF
to DocBook if possible. I investigated and found Majix
which converts to Simplified DocBook but the conversion
does not seem to be quite good a support has done been
given to the product since 1999. Therefore no RTF 1.6

I found UpCast which converts to an intermediary format
and after I have to go through XSLT transformations. The
conversion suits me, but I would like to know if there is
a good product (preferably Open Source) able to convert
from RTF to DocBook without big losses of information.

If people have tried Majix or UpCast with success, please
let me know of your appreciations.
