Is there not an XML application for this purpose?

I believe what you describe is probably required by FDA regs of some
sort, and I would be surprised if it were not already incorporated in

The "latest and greatest" Word--either recently released or fairly
soon to be--is supposed to be able to deal with XML much better than
in the past. If so, it should be a fairly simple matter to find the
applicable standard dialect and incorporate it.

A description of various of these dialects currently in use and coming
into use is in a white paper at That paper is
slightly dated, as it was published in 2002; at present, there is a
growing interest within FDA to use the eCTD pharmaceutical submission
format. The DTD involved is now version 3.2, which is downloadable at

The process for having the DTD and format of a submission validated is
described at

In other words, for preparing submissions templates now, I would be
strongly tempted to go ahead and do the XML work, as this seems to be
the wave of the future. One very nice aspect of the eCTD is that the
same format is being developed also by European and Japanese
regulatory bodies. This may wind up saving millions of dollars and a
great deal of time for drug submissions internationally.

The Cover Pages also list several other resources for other, related
XML standards for other purposes.
