NewsML Plug-in for WP 203 needed (3 posts)

    Hi, folks-
    we need a WP compatible plug-in that can spit out NewsML/NTIF format - which is similar to RSS 2.0 but plain text, no HTML, and is used by the newspaper and newswire industry (of which we're a part).

    We need this ASAP and are willing to PAY somebody to do it, or "encourage" an open-source iteration from a capable coder. Not suitable for first-time plug-in writers.

    Yes, this is NOT for the faint of heart!

    I did some quick research, and obviously the WP post system doesn't have nearly the metadata needed to generate 'reasonably full' NTIF. You'd need to annotate a ton with required custom fields, have some fixed variables for the high-level site information, etc.

    I'm not sure how you'd go stripping down the html for a given post given that NTIF is NOT plaintext -- it allows for certain annotation like em, ul/li, tables, and specialized NTIF tagging for certain things, including links and images, as well. I mean, you could force remove everything, but that'd lose a lot of 'detail'.
