Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Frame to Docbook XML

FrameMaker 7 includes tools for converting unstructured FrameMaker files
into structured FrameMaker files, which can then be saved as XML.   Those
tools are documented in Appendix A of:


which is installed under your FrameMaker 7 directory.  You have to create
conversion tables to map your FrameMaker styles to DocBook elements and
attributes.  Once you create the conversion tables, you apply them to as
many files as you have that use those FrameMaker styles.  Then you can use
the FrameMaker DocBook XML application to save as DocBook XML.

I don't know if their documentation covers conditional text, though.  You
need to map the Frame conditional text marker to the conditional DocBook
attributes used in profiling.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Frame to Docbook XML

Hi all,

Sorry to bother you all - but i need urgent help in converting a load of
unstructured frame files with loads of platform specific conditional text to
docbook xml.

Has anyone come across such a scenario, if so - could they please let me
know how to go about it. Any script that can automate this process or any
ideas/suggestions/advice/tweaks or additional inputs are most welcome.

Please give me your valuable suggestions.

Thanks & Regards,

PS: I am using Adobe Framemaker 7.0 on Windows XP with WebWorks Publisher
Professional 2003.
