The Semantic Markup Rule Language (SMRL) is a specification language to mark
or extract semantic meaningful sections and relations in/from structured human
The SMRL Metaparser is an XSLT based implementation of an SMRL processor,
reading and writing several different XML formats. Supported input formats are
- ISO 26300 text documents, better known as OpenDocument Format (ODF),
supported by OpenOffice 2.0 and KOffice 1.5,
- Microsoft Word 2003 Word Markup Language (WordML),
- Microsoft Excel 2003 Spreadsheet Markup Language (SpreadsheetML)
- and DocBook 4.2.
Supported output formats are SHORE XML, XHTML, XML Topic Maps (XTM), W3C RDF
and Graph eXchange Language (GXL).
This configurable parser dramatically reduces the effort needed for creating
OpenSHORE parsers for rich text documents. Typically you can create a new parser
for a medium complex document in 15 minutes. It is called "metaparser" because
it reads abstract format independent SMRL specification files and handles
several input and output formats.
