An excellent presentation on the pleasures and pitfalls of Word to XML
conversion. Also the demonstration of the ICE (Integrated Content
Environment) content management system for courseware was impressive. This
allows a teacher to write some material with the Open Office word processor
and have it converted into a portable and efficient XHTML format for
on-line delivery. The system uses a software development type version
control system to allow several people to maintain one set of courseware.
The software is open source and free <http://ice.usq.edu.au/>.
