Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Word-->DocBook (any existing solutions + an ideafor a new solution)

As long as the authors stick to some Word template, I have found 
rtf to XML converter quite usefull. Normally you will have to make very few
few corrections -if any- in the XML document.

BUT keep in mind that you will need to adjust Logictran to do the 
the way you want (or accordingly to the Word template you are using), so you
need to know about Docbook in advance.
