Hi David

You could do the following:

1. Write DITA XML topics, using any good DITA-aware editor: Leximation's DITA-FMx, oXygen, XMetaL and others

2. Publish your DITA-structured content in a variety of output formats:

* Using the DITA Open Toolkit
* Using any DITA-aware HAT, for example RoboHelp, WebWorks ePublisher,
Madcap Flare...
* For PDF output, you could use DITA-FMx (via FrameMaker) or
DITA4Publishers (PDF via InDesign). DITA4Publishers provides a
framework for transforming DITA-structured content to InDesign. You
can find it here on

Kind regards

yves Barbion
