Hi,

Does anyone know of any reliable open source product that can convert doc files to HTML files?

Thanks,
Lulu

Do you mean .doc files? Or do you mean XML document files?

Hi Christopher,
Didnt you notice the two words RELIABLE & OPEN SOURCE in the Question ?

Hi Everyone,

Yes, an opensource tool is what I'm looking for. I would like to embed it into a content management application that my group is building to allow end users to upload ready made word documents (and behind the seens) convert them into html, possibly even with our navigation framed around the content on the resulting html page. I know of a commercial product call HTML Export, however, I have not heard too many good things about it. Also, we are looking to save money.

Thanks for everyone's input, and please submit any suggestions that fit my explaination above.

Thanks,
Lulu

Doing a 'good' conversion of a .doc file into HTML is a pretty tall order considering how many different things you can put in a .doc file.

You might look into the possibility of using openoffice programmiticaly to do the conversion. Their development page is here. On the right of that page under the 'By Task' header is a link called 'Extend and Integrate'.

I don't actually know if this will work, but I don't know of another solution.
