Hi all,

I need generate technical documentation in XHTML. I know the HTML
ouput is possible with severals tools (like latex2html, after
convert lyx file in tex file, of course)

But ¿Is there some tools to convert lyx file to XHTML file?


I notice that OpenOffice has an option to Export to XHTML.

Nick Thomas recently wrote:

"I much like lyx, but have the need to convert to word-processor
format on occasions.  I have written two Python programs that
convert to OpenOffice format, and for example your UserGuide is
converted successfully."

SH: Nick's programs aren't generally available yet, but perhaps
you could write him in order to obtain the programs and then
test the converted UserGuide in OpenOffice with Export as XHTML.

Maybe this will be helpful,


Here is an alternative approach. Be aware that, from a W3C standards
point-of-view, lyx2html/latex2html do *not* produce good markup. They are
rather out-of-date and out-of-touch when it comes to certain design
practices. This statement is subjective and may also refer to older
versions of the tool below.


HTMLTidy is a popular tool for sanitising input HTML files and converting
them to proper, sometimes valid, (X)HTML. I suggest you have a look at:

* http://tidy.sourceforge.net/ (I was recently told it has an added
command-line option for XHTML)

* http://www22.brinkster.com/beeandnee/techzone/articles/htmltoxhtml.asp

Hope it helps,
