I converted a pdf file from Adobe 8 to .xml. TagEditor 8 returns the following error when I try to open it:

(35017) Error: Expected entity name for reference

Does anyone know what to do?

PDF-converted files will not work properly IMHO Apr 28, 2008

Where did you got the ini-settings for this xml file from?
The message you quote points AFAIK to an error in the ini file.

Regards
Jerzy

Created a new .ini settings file Apr 28, 2008

... after I received this error message the first time using the default settings I created a new .ini file using the Tagged Acrobat settings. But I received the same message.

You created an ini file from the xml? Apr 28, 2008

Than it should work, if the xml file does follow the xml standards, what I really doubt in this case.
Converting PDF to any editable format is not a "self goer", so I would use other methods for creating an editable file. Exctract the text (as plain text only) from Acrobat PDF by any means (OCR or anything else you can think of). Most important is that you'll get the whole text in your file. After that simply reformat it so, that it will match your needs, using Word.

I do not have any experience with saving PDF as xml, though.

Yes I did Apr 28, 2008

I used the suggested settings and imported tags from the Adobe file.... I think. It was the first time I've done that so I'm not quite sure if I did it the right way.
But by now I've just saved the files as .rtf and am working in them using Word.

There is an error in your ini file Apr 28, 2008

as one entity is not recognised properly.
Sorry, but I don't know how to fix that.
