SGML files into rtf and reversal Dec 2, 2002

Take a look into this page:

Maybe it helps... but here\'s something in advance:

4) Where can I buy or download a program to convert my Postscript/Word/WordPerfect legacy documents to SGML automatically?

ANSWER: If you have any experience in construction, that\'s roughly equivalent to asking where you can rent a machine to convert bricks into a house automatically.

Accept that you\'ll have to do some programming (and possibly a lot of manual intervention), then look at Steve Pepper\'s Whirlwind Guide (see above) to find some software tools that can get you started.

It doesn\'t sound very encouraging, does it?

Good Luck

formally Dec 3, 2002

Well formally you just have to change the dot rtf into dot sgml in the file\'s name.

But then the tags in the text must be SGML tags. Not HTML.
