Okay, so you have an content model -- a structure -- but now you have to figure out how to write the content that goes into that structure. How do you write content that will be usable and consistent, regardless of who is writing? This session shows you how to create consistent, reusable content to support your structures, and how to create writing guidelines that all authors can follow.
