    My Problem:
    I have a couple of Html-Files which i want to have as topics.

    Because copy and paste of the text and define the appearance for each File would take so much time i thought it would be nice if theres a way to convert the files.

    The Conversion to XHtml was no problem, but now i don't know how to continue.

    Maybe someone can help me 🙂

    The only thing XMetaL Author Enterprise offers is the feature that converts HTML to DITA via paste from the Windows clipboard (it also converts Word and Excel content by the way). As you have noted however, it is coded very specifically to work with the clipboard only.

    If you have a large number of files to convert you may wish to look at this:

    If you just have a couple of files it is possible this solution may not worth the trouble, unless you are adept at working with XSLT and Java.

    Several XMetaL partners offer content migration services, and if you have many topics it could be worthwhile to engage them: http://na.justsystems.com/content-partners.
