Adobe Introduces 'Save as XML' Feature

Currently in beta, Adobe has released a 'Save As XML' plug-in for its popular
Acrobat software. This feature enables users to save content from a tagged PDF file into XML, HTML or plain text format, allowing placement of content into other applications. A tagged Abobe PDF file is usually created from Microsoft Office 2000 applications, using the 'Web Capture' feature to convert a Web site to Adobe PDF format.

Currently, the following formats are available:

  • XML-1.00 without styling
  • HTML-4.01 with CSS-1.00
  • HTML-3.20 Accessible
  • HTML-3.20 without CSS
  • Text-only
  • The new plug-in may be downloaded via adobe.com.
