  1. The recorded session is not working. Kindly look into it.


  2. In terms of mapping your prospective site out with XML, it is just as important to your success to have good landing page optimization. This will allow your material to be searched more effectively. As publishers from all background start to move towards the digital realm, this is going to become increasingly significant.

  3. I would be happy to present some examples of XML in an InDesign book at a future TOC conference. There is no reason that it should be proprietary how one can effectively tag XML content for import into InDesign, nor what the issues are in regards to conforming to a DTD.
    One year’s competitor is next year’s partner, so getting out of the “proprietary” mindset will be important. It is time for publishers in specific types of publishing to organize better tagging routines for their content than DocBook, DITA, etc., that match their own reuse needs, as a group.
