Curated for content, computing, and digital experience professionals

Here and There

So a number of client projects recently have me looking for certain info and tools. If you have some thoughts about any of these, please do get in touch or post a comment here.
In no particular order:

  • Does anyone have experience with the XSL-FO stylesheets that have been created for previewing content encoded with the NLM article DTD? In addition, has anyone extended the stylesheets to work with the book tag set?
  • In a related note, has anyone tried the Word 2007 add-in for the NLM DTD? Experiences? Good, bad, or indifferent? I also wonder if anyone has tried extending it to reflect customizations to the DTD/schema?
  • Finally, I am looking to talk to users who have created DITA content with Microsoft Word, either one of the commercial add-ins like Content Mapper or a custom add-in.

    Hi Bill,
    I once put some of a client’s journals in NLM and then sent them through those XSL-FO stylesheets, and the resulting PDF looked surprisingly good with the default setup. Even the tables.
    I didn’t try extending them at all.
    Bob
