In case you need to create an xHTML file meeting ESEF standards, but it does not require tags (e.g. for Dutch companies who need to file an "enkelvoudige jaarrekening", see here ) you can use a simple workaround in Disclosure Management.


1) Create a period with Word, Instance and taxonomy reports


2) In the taxonomy report, upload a base and import the entry point



3) In the Instance, link to this entry point



4) Word report
Create a single chapter. In this chapter you upload the complete document that you want to convert
Generate the Word report, so now the Report is 1:1 with the chapter

Note: use an 'empty' template (Default.dotx) so no changes are made in the format


5) Generate the Instance
Do not use preview/validation/package etc.

Note: ignore the warning about no facts


6) The revision is created


7) The instance is a HTML, based on the Word report without inline tags


8) Edit the file (with a HTML editor)

In order to make the file into a 'well formed' xHTML, you need to change the following section

<html xmlns="" xmlns:ix="" xmlns:xbrli="" xmlns:xbrldi="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:link="" xmlns:xlink="" xmlns:ixt="" xmlns:esef_cor="" xmlns:esma_technical="" xmlns:xbrldt="" xmlns:lei-required="" xmlns:lei="" xmlns:ifrs-full="" xmlns:nonnum="" xmlns:num="" xmlns:label="" xmlns:xl="" xmlns:msg="" xmlns:gen="" xmlns:lei-fn="" xmlns:cfi="" xmlns:variable="" xmlns:valm="" xmlns:negated="" xmlns:net="" xmlns:reference="" xmlns:bf="" xmlns:sev="" xml:lang="en">

<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en">


<body><div style="display:none"><ix:header><ix:references xml:lang="en"><link:schemaRef xlink:type="simple" xlink:href=""/></ix:references><ix:resources/></ix:header></div>

<body><div style="display:none"></div>
