    How do I export content from an InDesign file to a database?

    d0liver

      I have this project that I'm working on where I need to do the reverse thing of what people normally do it seems - I need to take content that's available in InDesign and export that to a database. From my research, I'm attempting to do this by tagging content in InDesign and doing an xml export. This seems to work well except the resulting content is cluttered up with some things which are automatically tagged (Tables and Cells) and more importantly the exported xml does not contain linebreaks. The former problem I can work around (I can just have the import script ignore table and cell tags) but the latter problem is a loss of information so there's no workaround. Any help is appreciated.
