The translation table

Files converted from RTF/MIF to SGML by the rbmaker program look something like this:

        <PARA PARATYPE="title">My Document Title</PARA>
        <PARA PARATYPE="heading 1">Introduction</PARA>
        <PARA PARATYPE="normal">The purpose of this ...<PARA>

We can separate these two paragraphs with the following translation table entries:

        <PARA,PARATYPE=title>           title
        <PARA,PARATYPE=heading 1>       headings,keywords
        <PARA>                          body

Unfortunately, the type names title, heading 1, etc. are not standardized. Therefore, our default translation table may not do an adequate job. To learn which paragraph type names are contained in a document, you can add this to the table:

        <PARA:PARATYPE>                 paragraph-types

and then examine the SOIF output.
