Hi,
I have a requirement to convert a word document to XML document that can be rendered to Web using XSL. I am looking for a code or a method to convert Word document to XML programmatically. Can any body help me in this regard. Any help will be appreciated.

Regards
Abhijit.

It's hard to work with Word documents in Java. Helpful libraries might be POI, WordApi (Windows only) and OpenOffice (all linked here). I think the most promising of these is probably OO, but it has a definite learning curve.
