     Pier, apparantly, according to there brochure ReachCast have a product 
     that can take PDF files and convert them to an XML document. I do not 
     know how much flexibility you have on the conversion process.
     This conversion is of specific importance to me, as a project I'm 
     about to work on has a number of legacy PDF docs that need to be 
     converted into XML.
     Ok Paul

PDF -> XML ???? That's odd... I've always thought that people wanted to 
do XML -> PDF, not all the way around...
Being PDF a "graphic" language (much likely HTML, it's not content 
oriented, but display oriented) I believe that the only translation you 
can do is PDF->XSL:FO or another display metalanguage...

I'm browsing their site (www.reachcast.com) but can't find anything 
related to PDF -> XML... Any link?
