Budget $25 - $50 AUD / hour
Bids 7
Average Bid $28

I need some help with a project I am working on with a publisher. The job is to typeset a book in Adobe's InDesign desktop publishing software.

In point form, here is what I need.

1. I am given a DTD.

2. The book is supplied in XML format and must validate against the DTD at all times.

3. I need to be able to use the Adobe namespaces for paragraph and character styles. See page 20 of this document:

4. Using XSLT, I need to automate some of the formatting of the text as it is imported into InDesign. For example, I would require a XSLT stylesheet that looks at the element. If the element occurs first in a element, then it gets the attribute aid:pstyle="para-fo". In any other position within the element, it will need to get the attribute aid:pstyle="para"

Finished the job perfectly. Will hire for other projects! [16 September, 2013] Mr. Geert is a real professional. He just takes what he is sure he can manage, is realistic, and very focused in the results. He did studied the documentation for my XML destination and pointed out things I did not know I needed. It is very easy to communicate with him, and he is online a lot of time to answer for questions or asking it himself. Very responsible. I really recommend him, and everytime I need to work with any kind of XML stuff, surely will talk to him again.
