XDITA and HDITA: marrying lightweight DITA with HTML5

Over the last year the lightweight DITA document types have been used to prototype content from a variety of different sources within IBM, including marketing, learning and training, technical articles, and internal policies/procedures.

Presented by Michael Priestley

This presentation will introduce the lightweight DITA document types, demonstrate the feasibility of using a lightweight but still structured approach for integrating content across the enterprise content ecosystem, and show how lightweight DITA can be implemented using either XML or HTML5 as the base.

Who should come:

  • DITA users who need to collaborate with non-DITA users
  • Non-DITA users who find the existing DITA standard too complex

Some technical background would be useful. We will show examples with XML tagging, background knowledge of DITA useful but not necessary.
