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.
Our writers are using ArborTex Publisher to develop documents in SGML.
The decision to use SGML was from the home office in Sweden and
apparently because of our market being international. It was decided that
the conversion of documents from one market to another would be
easier using SGML.
One distinct advantage has been the conversion of document
files for printed documents into files for CD-ROM. The electronic
files for the documents prepared using SGML are ASCII. The CD-ROM
department developed filters to convert the SGML tags into appropriate
tags for presentation on the screen for CD-ROM. Some other systems
required more hand work during the conversion process.
