[epf-dev] WordHtmForEPF - Preparing Word saved .htm pages for instant EPF import


I was annoyed that I couldn't paste a .htm document saved from Word into a EPF rich editor without getting some rather unuseful results. I created a small groovy script to greatly improve the process.

Usage guide:
Save Word doc as filtered .htm page. It will create a folder with external resources used such as images, numbered image001, image002 and so on. This really sucks for importing into EPF.

Run the WordHtmForEPF.groovy in this directory, perhaps with a filepattern argument for selecting which htm files to process, fx: WordHtmForEPF.groovy Guide*.htm

The script will create new .htm files with EPF_ prefix for each .htm file matching the filepattern. These new .htm files have image src attributes redirected to images in a /resource folder.
The images from the Word saved resource folders will be renamed more usefully (with document name prefix) and copied to the new /resources folder.

Now if you open a EPF_xxx.htm fil in a broswer you can copy paste it into a EPF RTE and the result will be just beautiful. All images are transfered, stored in EPF /resources folder for the type of method element and each image named to indicate the method element they are part of :)

It even handles special characters (danish characters as of now...)
