[apologies for the cross-post.]
Hi all,

My export plugin for OmniOutliner is now available for use with both
OmniOutliner Professional and Standard:

It exports structural markup to an XML file that's able to be processed
directly by the ConTeXt TeX macro package. (That is to say, you can
simply type this at the command line:
  texexec --pdf MyOutline.xml
...and you get a pdf.)

There's a lot of documentation (but basic operation is really simple).
Omni's support people have asked that I take plugin support questions off
the OO-Users list, so there's a support mailing list at the above link as

I'm also soliciting feedback on further directions for this plugin. I can
imagine three possible directions:
1) Output in ConTeXt's TeX syntax,
2) Output a simplified structural XHTML (OO3's current offerings, while
gorgeous, are not so easy for hacking up a basic web page for use with
your own CSS),
3) Input the ConTeXt-XML format for basic round-tripping from Outline to
ConTeXt to Outline.
