Problem

I was unable to export Designer projects as HTML.

Solution

After a bit of hunting around, I came across Apache FOP:
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/

It’s an XSL FO to HTML Converter from RenderX …
(http://www.renderx.com/tools/fo2html.html)

The following procedure on the FOP mailing list was helpful:
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.text.xml.fop.user/8244/focus=8250

I hope this makes documentation a little less painful.

Note: This solution should work with any OS.

“Apache FOP (Formatting Objects Processor) is the world’s first print formatter driven by XSL formatting objects (XSL-FO) and the world’s first output independent formatter. It is a Java application that reads a formatting object (FO) tree and renders the resulting pages to a specified output. Output formats currently supported include PDF, PCL, PS, SVG, XML (area tree representation), Print, AWT, MIF and TXT. The primary output target is PDF.” – See
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/ for more details.
