	Thanks for the follow-up and the explanation.  I'll probably
take your advice and put together a little module for this.

Thanks again,

This is exactly what the HTML import tool was made for. Import a 
structure of existing HMTL pages and convert them into xml pages in 
OpenCms. Pictures and dowlloads are moved into galeries in OpenCms.
It does not support other content types like structured xml content.

Currently there is no "out of the box" tool for this in OpenCms. But it 
shoudl be not too difficult to write a little tool that can import your 
xml files if they already have the correct structure.
