To Andy and Other TWers:
I've seen faint glimpses on this list about developing documents in XML.
From what I've read on some code development sites, XML may replace RTF,
making early adherence to this standard a bonus for document groups. We're
been so convinced of this that we've switched to FrameMaker and are
migrating our document database to one that supports XML.
Who else out there is moving a documentation group to the XML standard, and
how are those folks making the migration from supporting RTF to XML? Anyone
banging their head against their keyboards yet?
Love to see a dialog on this one.
