I am tasked to convert our internal HTML blog ino a format that can be editied and printed Is there any was I can get the HTML page in INDesign format with retaining the HTML formatting for text and images. I am on a deadline. So any reply willl be much appreciated....thanks
I don't think it is going to be anything but mostly manual labor.
Now, if you were wanting to take it into Word, an Acrobat --> Word workflow is pretty much easily accomplished.
But that editable Word file I generated from this site will not easily get into ID. It is easier to set up a master document in ID and then copy/paste the blog text and images into ID.
The only other option I am aware of, and it does not help you on a deadline, is to export the data as XML and set up an XML workflow. That is quite an undertaking amongst you, your IT department, etc.
Take care, Mike
Thanks for alternatives Mike, I did start wit XML workflow. But I ran into 2 issues:
1. My web page is a blog. So it has has pictures embedded in text area. That did not go well with XML InDesign tagging. I could not use intermittent images and text
2. My images are not store locally. INsted they are on web server with links in HTML format. InDesign could not get images grom http:// URL
Hence I started looking for other alternatives working with HTML.
