s1000d xml tags in Framemaker

Hi,

I am trying to use Framemaker 2017 to edit s1000d data modules that were originally created in a different program.  When we use the WYSIWYG view to edit and make pdfs, Framemaker re-structures portions of the document with it's own tags, such as <fm.graphic>, <fm.title>. I'm assuming this is from using the built-in structured applications (such as S1000D_description_401, etc.) to compose the document.

However, the xml file is now useless to us, as these "fm" tags cannot be read in our customer's CSDB. Unfortunately we had done significant work on the files before realizing this.

Is there an easy way to export a "clean" xml file from Framemaker without the "fm" tags?  Or perhaps to un-apply the structured application?

Thanks!

MG
