Problems with opening documents containing SGML tags that are not supported by DTD

Phil,

If you have an Omnimark programmer around, they could probably write up
something that would take care of most of your problems. Switching DTDs is
never an easy task. I doubt any single script will work in all cases, even
when converting between just two DTDs. A preprocess conversion script
would help though. The basics (change DOCTYPE, Public Identifier, and base
element) as well as adding and removing incorrect mark up will help in the
long run. Adding the variuos counters would probably require either a
second pass by the conversion script or a second script.

Another approach that I haven't tried is to modify your ATD file. There is
a section in the ATD file called Context Transformations. You can enter
tags to try and auto correct your errors. Look in the on line help for
Using the ATD Editor.

Good luck.
