In pursuit of the ultimate techCom information architecture
DITA 1.2 includes the new subject scheme feature. I gave a presentation about the subject scheme feature on the 12th STC India conference in New Delhi 13th of November and how it can be used to manage and define the topic granularity. My experience is that many DITA users have problems in defining the size of a topic. How big is a topic? Is it two sentences or 10 pages?
DITA is an important interest area at the 2011 WritersUA Conference for Software User Assistance taking place March 13-16 in Long Beach, CA. The conference program is now posted and features the following DITA-related sessions:
Automated Customized Documents with DITA
A Style Guide for DITA Authoring

Are you finding yourself in the position of having to explain to others:
Last week, Single-Sourcing Solutions held a webinar to talk about best practices for doing DITA stylesheets in Arbortext Styler.
The presentation focused on several key points that contribute to a successful DITA implementation: understanding fall-back processing, using read-only stylesheets, and developing with modular stylesheets.
