We have been tasked to create SGML docs with *.cgm graphics, then
deliver them in *.PDF format. The graphics are Interactive
Schematics/Diagrams (I-Graphics) that provide component hotspots, links
to databases, interactive wire/signal tracing, etc - which all need to
be fully intact and functional in the PDF. We are reviewing IsoView and
IsoDraw to create the *.cgm graphics.
Does anyone have any experience/advice in this arena? Any info on
applications, concepts, techniques as well as pitfalls would be greatly
appreciated. All this is part of a larger Single source > Multiple
