Subject: docbook to wordml conversion questions


I'm having some issues with docbook to wordml conversion, and was  
wondering if anyone on this list would be able to help me out.

The document gets converted with no errors, but there are some big  
problems with ordered and itemized lists.

1)the text in the lists does not show up. It is in the generated  
wordml document, however there are some elements missing around it  
(<w:r><w:t> specifically, as if the <para> inside of <listitem> wasn't  
getting parsed by the xsl sheet).
2) the current docbook-xsl release (1.73.2) itemized lists don't have  
bullets, but ordered lists have numbers, and with the docbook-xsl  
snapshot bulleted lists have bullets, but ordered lists don't have  

The document I'm trying to convert is as simple as:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

		<listitem><para>bullet one</para></listitem>
		<listitem><para>bullet two</para></listitem>

		<listitem><para>number one</para></listitem>
		<listitem><para>number two</para></listitem>

To solve 1) I've tried  with both <para> and without <para> inside of  
<listitem> elements, but that doesn't help, and according to the  
comments in the xsl stylesheet it expects <para> (as it should). The  
only solution I found was to modify the roundtrip/docbook.xsl sheet  
and insert <w:r><w:t> around the contents of the <listitem> element  
definitely helps to solve this problem. (I'm fairly fluent in xsl, but  
don't have much experience with debugging xsl files, so putting it  
there manually rather than trying to track why the <para> inside of  
<listitem> is getting ignored was easier for me.) According to the  
wordml 2003 spec (http://rep.oio.dk/Microsoft.com/officeschemas/welcome.htm 
) the <w:r><w:t> is required.

My second issue seems to be related to the worldml template document,  
and I haven't been able to figure out what exactly changed in it and  
why it suddenly shows bullets but numbers are gone.

I was also wondering if anyone is actively maintaining the docbook to  
wordml xsl sheet (roundtrip/docbook.xsl) or if they are just  
occasionally updated. Or are they intended just as an example and  
should be developed further by users?

Thank you,
