Thanks for the suggestions. I'm looking into OmniMark and XSL.
If anyone can give a quick answer, is there a way to take an unknown XML
document (with a DTD) and convert it to a CDF or EDI file using OmniMark or
XSL? In other words, would I be able to write an XSL file (or Set up
OmniMark) to take any XML file and convert it with out having to customize
it for each XML format that comes in?
And, going in the reverse, can I use OmniMark to make an XML file out of a
different format (I don't think XSL will work, right?). OR what about the
IBM and SUN parsers/tools?
My problem is that I need to be able to convert XML files into a flat file
format, and I also need to take a file format (unknown, but should be
similar to flat file) and create XML files. I will always have a DTD (a
requirement) to make sure everything is correct.
So I guess the best question would be, is there any tools/parsers that will
return the DTD structure so I can programmatically create an XML file based
off of it? Any URL's that may point to the information or names of tools
that I can search for is greatly appreciated.
(Note: I'm new to XML, but understand the general document object model)
