We took what we learned from the popular Arbortext Monster Garage virtual meeting series and the overwhelming requests we received from the first annual TC Camp held in Santa Clara in January 2013 and blended them together. The result — a new twist on the typical web session.
It's time for the next installment of the DITA OT in the Arbortext Monster Garage.
In the first session on Arbortext and the DITA OT (last month), shop coach Mark Giffin from Mark Giffin Consulting, Inc., explained the basics of how Arbortext works with the DITA Open Toolkit.
We get a lot of questions about whether you can use Arbortext with the Open Toolkit. The answer is, "Yes, of course," but any further details are difficult unless you know what the questioner means by that: "Arbortext" is a portfolio of products that includes an editor, multiple publishing engines (for both typical and magazine-quality publishing), a content management system, a styling tool (so non-programmers can create stylesheets), a DTD/configuration tool, a dynamic link manager, and an illustration tool.
