Having mentioned the conversion of Powerpoint Slides to XML yesterday, I forgot to metion this one . I kind of like that idea. Here a small summary:
The idea is that we use the Windows Media Player 9 Windows Media File Editor to generate an XML file that describes the events in a Windows Streaming Media File.
We then perform the following transformations on the XML file
1. Convert from UTF-16 to UTF-8 so that we can use regular unix tools 2. Convert absolute slide flip pathnames to relative pathnames 3. Add markers for each slide flip so that we can navigate 4. Adjust the markers so that the title of each marker will be the title of the slide
We then take the resulting file and update the file
If you've tried the new open office 1.1 beta , you'll se that it handle pefectly PPt files, and can export it pdf and even xml (I(ve not tried yet) see those testimonials http://www.openoffice.org/about_us/testimonials.html?JServSessionIdservlets=rmkybpkwf2
finally I don't see no real utlity to get it XML, please give the real need for that kind of conversion ! Thanks
