Absolutely right.  The plug-in also has value for those wanting to export to 
XML and then import into Braille transcription applications like Good Feel.

Best wishes.

Kevin,

I had started what I deemed to be an off-topic thread about the XML plug-in, 
and how I might be able to exchange files with a Finale user. Tim suggested 
keeping that conversation on the list. Claudio contributed that a merge of two 
companies would soon result in the $100 XML plug-in becoming free.

So, while the topic is not specifically about the Access scripts, I think the 
reason Tim wanted the discussion to remain on-list is that it might be a help 
to others with Finale colleagues.

Dale
