I'm sure this question has been asked many times, but as a new PhD
student and "old" documenter, I'm wondering about foundational
resources and readings for both DITA theory and DITA applicaiton.

And speaking of applications, what are my options in Windows for DITA
tools? Do I just grab a reference manual and a copy of XML Spy?

What do DITA users on this list use in day-to-day tasks?
