So, I'm thinking of arranging a way to export the contents of an OO document to an HTML page. Columns would be something like:

* Contents
* Element (HTML tag to be used)

Actually, I'll just start with those two. So, Row One / Column One would be free-form text:

Settings

And Row One / Column Two would be a dropdown list of XHTML-compliant elements, in this case:

List Item

And I'd want this simple document to export
Code:
<li>Settings</li>
.

Naturally, it gets more complicated after that. Some things you'll want two elements for, like if that list item was also a link. And I haven't really thought through the parent/child vs. indenting thing much. Really, I'd just like to start with this first step and see if it's something I can do.

Here's the thing: I know nearly nothing about Applescript, and I only enough of Automator to discover that it's probably not the tool for the job.

Can someone point me to some relevant and/or easy-to-understand resources that might help me get a jump start on this project?
 
OO already exports to HTML: File > Export; change the file format.

... unless of course you're talking about a different way to export to HTML.

There's an SDK available on our extras page that includes instructions for building an Export plugin. Using export plugins requires OmniOutliner Professional though.
