Creating Structured Documents
February 27-28, 1995

Learn How to Produce Portable, Flexible, and Consistent Documents

A structured document is one that conforms to a rigorously-defined standard
document type. The parts of the document and the relationships between them
are the key elements of the definition. Structured documents separate
content and format. Authors concentrate on developing content, and only
later are formatting or desktop publishing decisions applied. This
separation often represents a new work process for many who are accustomed
to a WYSIWYG world. The underlying technology of structured documents is the
Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML, ISO 8879) and the growing suite
of SGML-compatible software tools.
