XML Authoring improves technical writing
XML Authoring improves technical writing and the field of technical communications. Join your local San Diego chapter for our monthly meeting in March 2020 with Liz Fraley. She will present an overview of XML authoring–what it is, how it benefits writers and the companies that use Arbortext as an authoring tool. Learn why you might change from desktop publishing systems to something more dynamic and why you can get excited about the change. She will highlight success stories from companies who have been doing dynamic information delivery for a very long time including qualified hard data on benefits, breadth of projects and the impact on long-term implementations.
What is XML authoring and why do we need it?
According to wikipedia, the design goals of XML emphasize simplicity, generality, and usability across the Internet. It is a textual data format with strong support via Unicode for different human languages. Although the design of XML focuses on documents, the language is widely used for the representation of arbitrary data structures such as those used in web services. Can we use the design goals of XML to simplify our technical documentation and increase its usability? Find out how XML authoring improves technical writing at our monthly meeting in March.
