The company I work for creates online courses for operation and maintenance of various equipment. Currently, we write the courses in Word. We have an XML schema that is applied to the document. The XML schema allows us to tag pages, questions (multi-choice, multi-answer), flash content, etc. We have a translator program created for us that takes the information from the Word XML file and converts it to a web site.
My problem is, new versions of Microsoft Word do not allow you to put in XML tags from a schema. I want to stay using Word or other Word Processors because it is quick and easy to use for the writers. I have been looking at various programs such as LibreOffice and different options in Word. What can I do to take content from these programs and author it on the web and still be able to have things like test questions or Flash content?
