From Em Software:
Xtags is a powerful text filter for QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign that automatically creates finished documents from a tagged text file. Xtags gives IT departments, OEMs, and system integrators a way to automate the construction of complex documents without learning InDesign internals or creating custom plugins, and it gives tag-using end users the power they need for complex editorial jobs. When driving the document building process with a database (picture-based data publishing, books, catalogs, classified ads, etc.), Xtags gives you the ability to build very complex documents using the data-side environment of your choice. From the end userÃ¢â?¬â?¢s standpoint, no technical knowledge is required, and itÃ¢â?¬â?¢s easy to use Ã¢â?¬â?? you produce a tagged text file, and the end user (or your automation script) simply imports the tagged text to generate the final document. Here are just a few things you can produce with Xtags: catalogs, one-to-one marketing, TV guides, directories, real estate guides, trader and swap magazines, phone books, classified advertising, and much more! Xtags can create text content with full styling, anchored and unanchored boxes and rules, size boxes to their contents, group multiple items together, apply master pages, and control many other aspects of document building. It integrates with InCatalog as well, allowing you to build a document and then update your data at any time without having to rebuild your document. Xtags is available for both Mac OS and Windows. It costs $400; multi-pack discounts are available.
