    Try opening in Word, which is fairly good at reading HTML, save as a Word file, and then place that in ID.

    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
