Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your OPML files and convert them to DocBook files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from OPML
The Outline Processor Markup Language (OPML) is an XML format for outlines, that is mostly used to exchange lists of web feeds between web feed aggregrators. It uses the RFC 822 date format, which is considered obsolete. Fans of the RFC 822 date think it’s a good idea to have only two digits to represent a year. But I have no idea if they were born 1900 or 2000 or if they’ve ever heard of the much cooler RFC 3339. Or how they would call it: RF 39. Anyway. You’re here because you want to use this format. Or you have to. My condolences.
The files end with
.xml by default.
Converting to DocBook
DocBook is a really good file format for writing technical books, that’s based on XML. It’s an open standard and widely used for open-source projects. It captures the logical structure of the content and can be published to many formats. Write the content in DocBook without thinking about the visual representation. Normally this is the part where I say something bad about the file format, but to be honest, I really like DocBook. Oh, just one thing: It’s very old. But that shouldn’t stop you from using the nice file format. Convert all your files to DocBook and convert them from DocBook to any other format. Just upload your file and we’ll see what we can do.The files end with
.dbkby default. More about DocBook files
