Maul XHTML import handler claimed by none

Task: Maul XHTML import handler/plugin

Description: Maul Desktop Publisher offers a plug-in interface for so-called handlers. These handlers can also be used to mplement filters to transparently import from and export to other file formats. The XHTML import handler would eed to be able to read a standard XHTML file and convert tags like headers, paragraphs, bold, etc. to the ative Maul file format.

Moreover, it would need to offer a possibility to convert CSS classes included in the XHTML file by applying aul stylesheets to the marked text. To achieve that, a mechanism to define associations would have to be mplemented, e.g., by using a dialog that connects CSS class names on one side to Maul stylesheets on the ther. With such a handler, nicely laid out versions of, e.g., the VOICE Newsletter could be much more easily reated.

Note that this does NOT mean that the handler would have to process the CSS stylesheet for the XHTML file! The only thing that is required is finding text that is marked with a "class" or "id" attribute and apply a corresponding Maul stylesheet.
