Eric, I'm a technical writer for Ixiasoft, I am responsible for the
transition of our doc to xml and last year I was responsible for
documenting our XML server as well. I tried docbook and dita and I am
working on expending my practicle knowledge of xml, .
I am also building some xml documentation for another company who is a
partner's of ours.
With Ixia and that partner I have two different situations with very
different needs. I am
trying to do as much as I can for both of them. This is my current
situation and role.

Hey John, relax. If anyone receives unsolicited spam from them, just
give Geoff and I a quick e-mail. We can go and express our indignation
face-to-face. We're both in Montreal too.
But I am interested in knowing more about France's situation and her
role in her company.
But that all being said I have no problem saying that I work for a very
large company in a department that has spearheaded the use of SGML/XML
for the whole industry.
