Subject:Re: Draft then Tag, or Tag while Drafting? From:"Dick Margulis " <margulis -at- mail -dot- fiam -dot- net> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Mon, 7 Apr 2003 15:24:41 -0400
Different strokes for different folks, Jim.
I usually start with the structure and, if I am working with a blank screen, am as likely to write empty tags and go back later to fill in the content as you may be to write content and go back later to add tags.
So long as we both end up with functional documents, it shouldn't matter, right?
