XML Export is part of the KeyView Export SDK. It enables you to convert virtually any document, spreadsheet, presentation, or graphic into well-formed, valid XML which is validated against a predefined Document Type Definition (DTD). With XML Export, you control the content, structure, and format of the XML output using either easily customized templates, or the flexible and robust APIs.
The main purpose of XML Export is to apply an XML vocabulary to the data structures in a document so that content and metadata can be indexed and subsequently searched in context.
Data structures in a source document can be:
metadata (title, author, subject, and so on)
tagged text (chapters, sections, bulleted lists, and so on)
table components (sheet names, rows, columns, cell ranges, and so on)
presentation components (notes, slide titles, slide descriptions, and so on)
Although viewing is not the main purpose of XML Export, Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) style sheets or Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) can be used to display the XML data.
Export SDK supports a number of programming environments, such as Visual Basic, Java, and Delphi and runs on all popular operating system platforms including Windows, Solaris, HP-UX, IBM AIX, and Linux.
Export SDK is part of the KeyView suite of products. KeyView provides high-speed text extraction, conversion to web-ready HTML and well-formed XML, and high-fidelity document viewing.
