Presented by Thomas Aldous at Documentation and Training West, May 6-9, 2008 in Vancouver, BC
Have you thought about converting to XML, but were afraid it was to difficult? Have you talked to consultants who make the process seem long and expensive? Wondering if you should adopt a standard like DITA or go it alone?
Well, if you have a laptop, Adobe FrameMaker 7.2 or Adobe FrameMaker 8, and some sample unstructured documents (Word or FrameMaker), we'll walk through the steps that it takes to convert Word and FrameMaker files to XML, using both a custom DTD and using DITA. We will also edit those documents with some of the industrys leading XML editors.
This session is all about getting you started without the hype.
Whether you own FrameMaker or not, this session is a good starting place for those thinking of making the move to structured documentation.
