FrameMaker for Word Users: Hybrid Publishing: mixing DITA/XML and
unstructured content in FM Books – Abode

Tuesday, August 20 10:00 a.m. (Pacific)

Many Word users want to migrate to topic-based authoring and structured
editing. But this is not an overnight process, and their project delivery
schedule may prevent converting all data to DITA before first publication
occurs. FrameMaker 11 allows you to create a book that is composed of DITA
or XML files for chapters, and unstructured FrameMaker files (swiftly
converted from legacy Word docs) for appendices and "back matter." View
this session to find out just how logical and easy this can be with
FrameMaker.
