Chapter 15 Extracting Styling Information

Although in most cases, users will be employing Atomik Xport to take unstructured content from InDesign and turn it into structured XML, in essence throwing away the styling information from that content, there are certain situations when it might be advantageous to be able to extract some of the basic styling information from the InDesign document too. For example if you wanted to maintain the fact that some of the text in a document is BOLD or uses the Shadow style. In this case you may not be concerned with or even able to tell what the specific piece of content is, however you do need to know that it had this style change. An example of where this might be useful is if you convert your XML into HTML and want the bold styling reproduced.
