TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I am a returning member of the list with an XML question.
Issue: I am looking/evaluating XML content management systems for my company. Currently, we work in Word and export to pdf via Acrobat and HTML Help via WebWorks. Our current document management system consists of a well structured folder hierarchy (no external links).
Prerequisites: Content will continue to be written in Word (upgrading to 2007). The system will also be used by non-Word experts (i.e. people other than tech. writers); this means that easy-of-use is a must. The management system should be as transparent to the writer as possible.
Environment: We will be updating from Office 2003, Windows XP to Office 2007, Vista in the near future.
If you have any recommendations or suggestions, please reply with the details.
