Arbortext Import/Export – Reference Manual for Importing Documents
Arbortext Import/Export is a complete platform for transforming unstructured content from existing file formats (such as Microsoft Word, HTML, Adobe PDF,and Adobe Framemaker, Microsoft RTF) into a target XML DTD or schema. The product includes the Arbortext Import Workbench, which is used to test and refine MapTemplates, as well as the Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher components which allow Arbortext Editor users to convert individual source documents using the resulting MapTemplates.
The process of importing to XML is rulesbased, and sets of rules can determine the XML output for a class of source documents.
Arbortext Import/Export Import Step-By-Step Tutorial
The best way for you to get to know Arbortext Import is for you to start using it immediately. In that vein, this chapter will have three parts. First, we will first guide you through the quick process of transforming a Microsoft Word document into a simple, stylisticbased XML that we call preprocessed XML or ppXML. Second,we will then show you how to likewise transform simple HTML and Framemaker MIF documents into ppXML, just to illustrate how similar it is to transform different types of documents into ppXML. Third, we will then show you how to transform an ASCII text file into simple, yet semanticbased XML. This final lesson will serve to expose you to the main portions of Arbortext Import, MapTemplates and MapObjects. The process of creating and modifying MapTemplates will make up the rest of the tutorial chapters after this chapter. Finally, in this chapter, we will show
you how to use some of the prepackaged templates for serverbased publishing of Microsoft Word documents.
Note that many of the end results of the stepbystep tutorials are available in the Examples project that is shipped with Arbortext Import and opens up as the first project when you first launch Arbortext Import. To see it, you can choose
File→Open Project and select Examples.xyz in the \Examples subdirectory.
However, if you wish to learn to use Arbortext Import, it is best to go through this tutorial step by step and recreate these templates so that you understand how it is done.

Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL)
XSL is a language for expressing stylesheets. It consists of two parts:
• a language for transforming XML documents, and
• an XML vocabulary for specifying formatting semantics.
An XSL stylesheet species the presentation of a class of XML documents by describing
how an instance of the class is transformed into an XML document that uses the formatting vocabulary.
