Have you been told that you have to sacrifice the look or layout of your PDFs in order to gain the benefits of XML and structured authoring? Are you concerned that moving to DITA will mean that you'll need to pay consultants to maintain your publishing workflow? With FrameMaker and DITA-FMx you can continue to take advantage of your in-house expertise and tools while benefiting from the efficiencies of XML.

In this presentation you'll learn about the various options for producing PDFs from DITA, and see how easy it is to publish PDFs using DITA-FMx. You'll also see how you can take advantage of existing FrameMaker template development skills to control the layout and design of the PDFs. Even if you're using another DITA authoring tool, you can use DITA-FMx for publishing.

Come to this presentation with your questions about PDF publishing from DITA. Scott will provide honest answers to your questions and your particular situation. Bring your content! We'll have lots of time for questions and we can even try some conversions of your sample content.

Registration for this class includes free admission to the Unconference in the afternoon.
