I agree with you, Fred, that I could have done Wikipedia and Google.
However, I figured the expertise here would give me a nice foundation
from which to further research Dita. I could get a notion of where to
begin from a good sampling of practitioners and then whittle down the
resources from there.

Regarding Wikipedia: Can I trust it more than I can trust a list of
experts? Is it more valid for technical matters than for other types
of issues?

Thanks, all, for the primer.
