Infoteria Corporation announced a strategic alliance with Quark Japan. Quark Japan is part of U.S.-based Quark Inc. Quark has committed to XML to support its strategy of web-based “media- independent publishing.” New Quark offerings for web-based publishing include avenue.quark, which converts Quark XPress content to XML. Under its new alliance with Infoteria, Quark will provide advanced XML capabilities to users of Quark XPress, including schema design capabilities and the ability to convert to new schema languages, which will make it easier for Quark XPress content to be widely exchanged via local area networks, wide area networks, and the Internet. In addition to providing new capabilities to Quark XPress users immediately, the alliance between Quark and Infoteria will result in joint development and marketing of new web publishing solutions and XML training options.,
