I haven't seen this addressed lately, so I thought I'd see if anyone has
any thoughts about database publishing. The concept is pretty
straightforward: by tagging text that is reused throughout a
documentation set, you only have to update once, and the system
constructs the manual based on everything set for the tags.
Corel Ventura 7 includes Corel Database Publisher (which was introduced
back in version 4 or so). I haven't used the latest version -- same
problem with declining market share as Interleaf -- too bad having a
great product doesn't necessarily mean you'll have a great market share
-- but I assume the concept hasn't changed. It uses a straightforward
process of 1) selecting the type of database management system you're
using, 2) selecting the fields to import into the doc, and 3) declaring
which fields you want mapped to which Ventura tags. For more info, see
