Mark Gross identifies five issues that you will likely have to face as you pour existing documentation into DITA. In the same issue of DCL News Diane Wieland interviews Ann Rockley and Steve Manning of The Rockley Group about DITA, XML, and legacy content conversion and issues of critical importance to those organizations considering a move to dynamic personalized content delivery and component content management.
These articles and more are part of DCL News, the official newsletter of Data Conversion Laboratory. The monthly newsletter is free and always includes a few interesting original articles or interviews as well as tidbits, tips, humor, and links to interesting stories written by others.
