Notes Flat File Format (NFF)

A New XML Application Initiative: Notes Flat File Format (NFF)

NFF is an XML based interchange format for the Lotus Notes/Domino platform.

The DTD, basic documentation, sample + software are available for download at:

NFF is an XML based application intended to act as an interchange format for the Lotus Notes/Domino Publishing platform.

The NFF DTD supports the majority of the constructs that can occur in Lotus Notes data such as structured fields, rich text, doclinks, import objects and so on.

Once data is in XML conforming to the NFF DTD it can be imported into Lotus Notes using a simple "File-Import".

The download package includes the necessary software along with a sample application - Timon Of Athens by William Shakespeare in NFF format.

The software is freely available and comes with absolutely no warranty whatsoever.

All constructive feedback welcome!
