View Full Version : Html to rtf converter

10-28-2003, 04:40 AM

I want to give the facility to print some of the data on my site, I want that to be in a formatted way. I am using servlets, Any Idea where can I get an open source html to rtf converter.

I think if the formatting can be done using different classes then that would be the best.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi denny,

There are a whole raft of ready made packages as I'm sure you're aware... for example Logitran's Net2RTF (http://www.logictran.net/products/) which retails for $39.95. To be honest, I haven't come across anything that's 'open source' on my travels.

The HTML to RTF conversion sounds like a relatively easy thing to accomplish using XML and XSL transformation, but you say you're using servlets, so I guess that wouldn't be an option.
But for anyone that may be interested, there is an open source converter called jfor here (http://www.jfor.org/).

Also, do you need to create an actual RTF file as such... or are you just looking for a printable page? Maybe you can achieve this by other means?

Just my two cents

I need to create an actual rtf file, I wish some open source is available.

Otherwise I will have to read all the rtf header and all. Any guess where can I start.

I will start the battle soon.

Thanks once again
