Published on

This 2-hour tutorial was presented at the tcworld 2011 conference in Wiesbaden. It shows how you do not have to use the DITA Open Toolkit, Ant scripts, native XML editors and XSL-FO or other transformations to use DITA and create output in a variety of formats. DITA for the rest of us. It is NOT a tutorial about DITA - check out my DITA for Dummies to find that type of info.
