  • Note 1: Since Confluence now uses HTML as the internal format you can use the same script to convert from HTML to XWiki Syntax
  • Note 2: XWiki supports several syntaxes natively so you don't need to convert, except that the XWik Syntax is the most complete one and can be used without loss with the XWiki WYSIWYG editor (see PageEditing).
  • Note 3: There's now a Confluence Importer
