Structure and Collaboration
Structure and Collaboration

December 12, 2014, 18:00 - 19:00 PM GMT

Is there a way to make it easier for casual contributors and collaborators to produce structured content? With the right combination of techniques and tools, we cannot only bring structured authoring within the ability of all contributors; we can make it easier for them to contribute using structured rather than unstructured methods.

Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a free one-hour web presentation with special guest, Mark Baker, author of "Every Page is Page One" (2013 XML Press).

Mark will highlight some of the techniques you can use to simplify structured authoring and involve more contributors including:

  • Treating content capture as a separate function and optimize for ease of use
  • Hiding application semantics
  • Fitting content semantics to the author
  • Collecting the minimal necessary structure
  • Fitting the interface to the task
  • Hiding the tags; showing the structure

Deep Dive: XML Structured Authoring
Deep Dive: XML Structured Authoring

December 4, 2014, 17:00 - 18:00 PM GMT

George Bina will explore the world of XML authoring for technical documentation. He will share tips and tricks designed to help technical communicators understand the advanced information management capabilities structured XML authoring provides over traditional authoring approaches. He will use oXygen XML Editor to demonstrate the techniques.

Cost: Free

Recording available to those who register.

Specifically, George will address the following questions:

  • How do I know what content to create?
  • What XML markup should I choose and why?
  • How do I leverage markup to engineer better authoring experiences?
  • How to we enforce content rules in XML documents?
  • Why correcting content problems during the authoring process can help you reduce costs?

How Merck Advanced Their Global Content Collaboration
How Merck Advanced Their Global Content Collaboration

October 29, 2013

Since 1899, Merck & Co. has been publishing medical information for physicians, pharmacists, veterinarians, and people interested in medical care who did not have a medical degree. Today, these publications, known as The Merck Manuals, require hundreds of writers from around the world to contribute and revise content on an ongoing basis. With such a large and dispersed team, Merck experienced many challenges in the technologies needed to coordinate and maintain publishing schedules as well as in the varied technical skill levels of team members. Join this webinar, hosted by Vasont Systems and Syncro Soft / oXygen XML Editor, to hear how Merck has advanced their content management and collaboration processes with this global team to overcome these challenges.

DITA Support in oXygen - Profiling and Reuse with DITA 1.2
DITA Support in oXygen - Profiling and Re-use with DITA 1.2

June 26, 2013

This webinar focuses on advanced features that justify the return of investment you get from using DITA. RE-USE is the key word and can be implemented either directly though content references or indirectly through profiling/conditional content. We will also explore publishing by showing how you can change transformation parameters and how you can obtain multiple output formats from DITA.

Topics covered:

  • Re-using content.
  • Keys: defining keys, making key references and content key references.
  • Validate and check for completeness using profiling conditions and DITAVAL filters.
  • Advanced profiling using Subject Schemes maps.
  • Customizing a transformation scenario, changing parameters.
  • Publishing using multiple scenarios, each having a profiling condition set applied.
  • Using a different DITA-OT.

The Business Case for Forms-based Authoring
The Business Case for Forms-based Authoring

June 19, 2013

Structured content is considered fundamental to content strategy and an organization's ability to deliver content where it is needed across a wide variety of devices and media. Yet authoring structured content has always been a difficult problem. Coding raw XML and WYSIWYG authoring do not work for most authors.

Starting with version 14, oXygen introduced the form controls as a new approach to authoring, one that hides the complexity of XML without obscuring the structure we are trying to capture, or creating hard-to-understand errors.

oXygen invited Mark Baker, owner of Analecta Communications and consultant in structured authoring and topic-based writing, to explore the business case for forms-based structured authoring. Topics covered by this webinar include:

  • Why structured authoring is critical to the modern enterprise
  • The limitations of current structured authoring methods
  • How forms-based authoring addressed these limitations
  • How forms-based authoring hides XML syntax better than WYSIWYG
  • How forms-based authoring at last delivers the ideal of separating content form formatting
  • A demonstration of forms-based authoring in oXygen XML
  • The benefits to the organization from adopting forms-based authoring

XML Authoring for Everyone
XML Authoring for Everyone

April 10, 2013

People are usually afraid of authoring XML because they perceive this as a lot more complicated than using a word processing application. The authoring support for XML however was improved continuously in the last years and oXygen can provide user interfaces allowing normal users to work with XML. These interfaces are a lot easier to use than word processors. In this webinar we will show a few examples of how oXygen can make XML editing accessible to everyone, and how you can provide similar user interfaces to edit your own XML formats.

" oXygen XML Editor is the premier text editor for XML geeks, and an indispensable tool for O'Reilly's Production group. My team uses oXygen XML Editor for everything from simple XML editing to Schema validation and XSLT transformations. The digital production staff especially loves oXygen's built-in EPUB support, which eliminates a great deal of the grunt work that is usually entailed in editing EPUB files. The more we use oXygen, the more realize what a powerful tool it can be in digital and XML-based workflows."
