Description
This web service software takes multiple word processor files (typically .doc) and converts them to Oasis OpenDocument and HTML.

The resulting OpenDocument is then optionally converted to HTML or any XML. This is done with XML Pipelines, an approach that supports XSLT, breaking up content over headings or sections, and saving those results to multiple files (e.g., chapter1.html, chapter2.html…).

The result is returned in a .zip file.

Docvert is easy to integrate as it uses a simple REST-style interface, and it's released under the LGPL so although it's open source there's no legal problems developing proprietary software ontop of it. The XML produced is easier to understand and more structured than the WordML or .DOC formats.

Docvert builds upon the work of several word processors such as OpenOffice.org, Abiword, and soon KOffice. Docvert is very grateful to benefit from their years of reverse engineering work.
