Retired Course; no longer available


DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) is a widely recognised, standardised, XML-based information architecture that more and more companies are using for technical documentation. As with all XML structures, appropriate tools are needed to edit the XML sources and to create documents from these sources for publication.

Structured FrameMaker already contains a configuration for DITA, which enables WYSIWYG creation and high-quality print publication from DITA sources. In this course, you will learn about what Framemaker offers for DITA.


After the course, you will be able to use FrameMaker to create DITA documents that are ready for publication.
