Dear Andrew,

Greenstone is mainly a software for publishing electronic documents on web. It is not a tool for conversions and archiving of documents. Believe me, making the conversion outside Greenstone is much easier ale less time consuming.

I think that you will need some good IT support for your project.

I wish you all the best,

Tomáš Fiala
