Hello Andre,

no solution. 

The notebook contains no Mathematica commands it contains the markup
for the document ! So the input 


is in Cell[] like


You may read the Notebook with

nb= <<test.nb

and use nb /. Cell[expr_,"Input",___] :> ToExpression[expr] to evaluate
the contents
of the input cells but result will not be a evaluated notebook !

The usual way is to write a plain text file with the
Mathematica commands and write a log file os the session. Several
log-file packages are on MathSource and Roman M"ader has two (one for
automatic Notebook creation) in the third edition of "Programming in

Hope that helps
