The successful conversion of the GoldBook to the online structured
XML form was the first step to set up standard dictionaries for
Color Books. Such dictionaries will help IUPAC to keep its leadership
in chemical terminology and at the end to enable an interconnection
between particular books with better indexing and searching functions.
At first, all Color Books will be examined to receive up to date
information of the status of each book. Then the focus will be kept
to developed suitable methods for transformation of each Color Book
to the structured form. These methods may substantially vary since
each Color Book has a different structure of data and data descriptions.
A generic software framework will be developed which will be used
for transformation and further processing of color books (and other
