You already know that SGML can supercharge your publishing processes, helping you leverage information in powerful new ways. All that’s left is the hard part–implementation. One book will you through every step: SGML at Work, the most detailed guide to building real-world SGML publishing systems. Expert SGML and XML developer Dan Vint presents a cradle-top-grave, soup-to-nuts methodology for deciding what to do, when to do it, and how to do it right. He answers key questions like: SGML at Work covers the nitty-gritty of building an SGML publishing system: developing DTDs as efficiently as possible, introducing a quality control cycle that works, using and adapting conversion tools, and more. You’ll find extensive code and software configurations you can use today. If you’re implementing SGML, don’t reinvent the wheel–let SGML at Work help you get the job done right, the first time. The SGML at Work CD-ROM contains an extraordinary library of commercial SGML trialware, and configurations to support the immediate use of Corel Ventura Publisher 7 and WordPerfect 8, Grif, InContext SGML editors, Arbortext ADEPT*Editor and Document*Architect, the OmniMark programming language for document conversion and manipulation the Texcel Information Manager, and all these deliver tools: INSO DynaText and DynaWeb, and SoftQuad Panorama Pro. You’ll also find a complete working sample implementation that takes a FrameMaker document through DTD development, SGML conversion, cleanup, editing, presentation and document management. This sample is used to develop programs and demonstrate the SGML industry’s best commercial shareware and freeware tools. Dan Vint has been involved in documentation systems development and support since the early days of the desktop publishing revolution in the early 1980s, and has implemented SGML tools in defense, aerospace, software development and legal publishing environments.
