easy way to import HTML into unstructured FrameMaker?

May 3, 2013 3:42 PM

I occasionally need to take content from a MindTouch wiki and add it  to a FrameMaker doc. The wiki source is very basic HTML: h2, h3, p, strong, ul, ol, tables, that's about it.

 

Is there a tool that will convert HTML to FrameMaker or MIF? Sort of the reverse of RoboHelp / WebWorks / MIF2Go?

 

I can paste and reformat but it takes a lot of time and it's really annoying when I have to do it again after edits.

    Or MML.

    How hard could it be? (as the saying goes).

     

    I'll bet someone somewhere has done it.

    The main challenges would be handling tags where legacy closing tags are optional, and just plain defective markups.

    The search string (with quotes):

    "html to rtf"

    generates lots of promising hits.

    2 steps.

    No coding.
