Subject AW: DITA to xdoc stylesheets
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2006 08:04:25 GMT
Hi everybody,

Thanks a lot for the information.
I suppose it will last some time, before the plugin will be realized.
So, for the meantime, I wrote some stylesheets doing the work.
Was much less effort than I thought...
It just took less than a working day to get a prototype up an running.
Thanks a lot.

best regards,
Roman
