HTML Character Sheets - can you help?
I've been tinkering around with importing the saved character files from WoTC's Character Builder in to an HTML character sheet and have had fairly good success so far. I am now ready to try importing the data in to a well designed character sheet instead of my un-designed testing rig.
Interested parties can reply to this post and I'll discuss details further via PM.

character sheets using the data collected and calculated in the Character Builder.
Good find though, I didn't actually know about that web app

Andrew Reutter here from iplay4e.com. I just wanted to note that we would very much like our site to generate decent printable sheets, but other features with greater priority make it unlikely we'll get to it ourselves soon.
The way we generate sheets (interactive or not) is as follows:
- When you upload a dnd4e file, we parse it into a more easily consumable XML format (ip4xml). This file throws out all the cruft and exposes only the pieces needed to build a character sheet. You'll find it much easier to work with than the dnd4e content itself - not to mention the fact that we'll already be dealing with keeping up with changes to the dnd4e format, that we also plan on parsing Monster Builder files into ip4xml format, and so on.
You can sample ip4xml by viewing the source of this page:
- The various formats (browser, tablet, mobile, BBCode, etc...) are simply XSL documents that transform that XML into HTML. I'm happy to provide samples of this as well.
If someone were to contribute XSL that generated a pretty printable sheet from the XML document, we'd be thrilled to add that to our "File" menu. Something like: File -> Printable Format (compliments of neolithic).
If you're interested, respond here or hit me up via email: andrew.reutter at gmail.com

I have a perfectly good multipage 4e HTML character sheet. It even does a good bit of the calculations for you, though obviously you wouldn't need that. Not sure how useful it is, but could be worth looking at. In any case its pretty clean and modular.
I eat XSLT for lunch too, so anyone that needs any help with that, I can always give you a hand. Don't have a ton of spare time but still...
