Arbortext Announces DITA Support

Arbortext announced the next release of Arbortext 5 will include support for Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA), an IBM-created, OASIS-sponsored initiative that is an XML-based, end-to-end architecture for authoring, producing, and delivering technical information. This architecture consists of a set of design principles for creating “information-typed” modules at a topic level and using that content in delivery modes such as online help and product support portals. DITA is an open standards initiative to develop specialized data models for XML publishing applications that can readily adapt to the requirements of diverse applications while retaining both information and application compatibility. Starting with the DITA ‘topic’ data model, different groups can modify it to support their unique requirements without fear of breaking enterprise publishing software applications or creating incompatibilities with other groups or divisions that would prevent information sharing. DITA specializations can be “snapped on” as deltas to the base support, preventing the need to create or update massive DTDs. The core of DITA provides rich set of semantics for creating architected information. www.arbortext.com
