XML: The Key To Future-Proofing Your Multi-Channel, Multi-Device, Digital Publishing Strategy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Typically ebooks are produced from digital composition tools that were designed for optimizing printed documents. These enable us to produce books with high quality visual appeal, but when we try to use them to produce ebooks and apps they can cause pain, especially if we plan on repackaging content for new saleable products. XML is an ideal format that allows you to design modular reusable content. This session will show how the power of XML can be harnessed to produce content now and into the future.
Participants will learn:
+ How XML can be used to produce content for multiple devices and multiple outputs (print, multiple ebook formats, apps) all from the same XML source content
+ Where XML fits in the publishing workflow
+ The tools and technology that support XML-based digital publishing

This session will use case studies and provide real-worldexamples of XML-based content in use today.
