WordML to WordDoc

Hey again!

I posted up some weeks ago about creating Word Documents within PHP. Based on a number of templates. What I decided to do was to save the templates in XML form and manipulate them that way. This has worked very well so far.

The only problem I'm having now is converting them to .doc format. I have a function xml2doc() that creates a word object, opens the word XML and then saves it as a .doc file. I did this because I thought I would also be able to send a print command but no luck!

When I run this function it takes over 20seconds for one document and thats quite slow, does anyone know of any server side convertion tools floating about?

Many Thanks

Aspose have been promising WordML support in their Aspose.Words component "in a few" months for about 3 years now!

Which is a shame as they do excellent components - I've used Aspose.Words before and thought it was great.

Perhaps you could try asking them when they expect to support WordML.
