I am evaluating rtf2xml for the conversion to DocBook. I think it does a wonderfull job and I found out that information I am missing in the output of the to_sdoc stylesheet is present in the raw XML, so after a bit of tweaking, I must be able to get what I need.

However, I cannot find information about table cells that are merged horizontally and or vertically. I must say I cannot even find it in the RTF, although I am not an expert. Having this information would save a lot of manual post-correction.

Would it be possible for rtf2xml to detect table span information or does that need to be derived from cell widths and cell heights?

Note that upCast (www.upcast.de) can do the job - it's just a bit too expensive for my purposes.
