converts SXW documents to DocBook XML


OOo2Dbk allows to convert documents from OpenOffice-Writer SXW format to a simplified DocBook XML format.

OOo2Dbk is made of an XSLT stylesheet and a set of Python scripts that permit direct processing of SXW documents and extraction of the pictures included in the document.

It can also be used autonomously in order to convert OpenOffice-Writer XML documents produced with a FlatXML filter.

The original version of ooo2dbk is ooo2sdbk, written by Eric Bellot. This version can still be found at

OOo2Dbk can at the moment only process files generated by the 1.1.x series.

Future versions of OOo2Dbk will process files generated by the 2.x series.
