Hi Kevin - like Doczone - DITA Exchange has been designed to handle the end-to-end-single-source-publishing process. However DITA Exchange is specifically designed to SharePoint 2007 and DITA.

So you have several product out there that would help you through the process.

Thanks, Ole

Emne: What would you do? Part 2.



Thanks one and all...I've received a lot of feedback, and it's all
excellent.

How's this for a thought?

Since I'm in Word now, and I desperately need to (1) get out of Word and (2)
restructure/rewrite the information...would it be wise to come up with a new
structure (DITA, for example) and move everything into a new structure in a
new tool ... all while rewriting it?

It sounds pretty insane when I write it out like this...but just how insane
would it be? Let's say i wanted to rewrite everything in FrameMaker 7.2
(which is structured, and can be output to XML/DITA/etc). Can i kill two
birds with one stone here?

Kevin
