How It Works
Content Mapper is a Microsoft Word based XML authoring environment. It is driven by schemas and takes control of the user interface allowing the author to only create valid XML. The author stays in the familiar Word setting and never has to learn XML. »
Creating a New Document
Micrsoft Word templates are provided and make it simple for the author to enter text. We can also help you design templates that meet the needs of your organization. »
Editing Your Document
The familiar Word ribbon provides all the tools you need to edit your content and hides any Word functions that are not allowed by the XML standard. You can easily format text, insert tables and images, add lists, and more. »
Publishing Your Document
Content Mapper incorporates a publishing wizard that allows authors to write content once, then publish to multiple output formats. The Publication Service Wizard allows you to create beautiful documents customized to your exact needs. »
The central benefit of content reuse is it allows you to write and maintain your text once, but have it appear multiple times throughout your document set, and it can radically reduce the cost of maintaining documentation. »
DITA is an XML-based open standard for structuring, developing, managing, and publishing content. DITA has gained widespread adoption in the technical documentation world, but DITA adoption isn't exclusive to high tech. We'll show you a simple way to adopt DITA. »
