Good news - at least tentatively - there IS a way to export data from QuarkXpress. I know there are 3rd party products that do this as well as a product from Quark, the publisher of the software. It is also possible that the capability is now built into ver 6.5, or at least it seems so to me. That of course would be great.
I sent an email to the manufacturer for clarification.
So it appears that I will be wanting that sample of the guide. I will be in the office for sure on Tuesday and likely Monday, so if you can have a CD by then that would be great.
In case you are interested in reading what I found, here are some links:
