WHITE PAPER

XML for Publishers

Discover how change, when harnessed and managed, can add real value to a publishing business. The widespread use of XML structured documentation systems, and the deployment of XML-aware change management tools, has made it possible to bring all of the advantages of structured information to the publishing of change.

Manage differences. Embrace change.

Change is one of the dynamics of the publishing world – a consequence of industrial or scientific advance, of shifting fashions, of political whim or of the editor’s red pencil. But the casualties of change should not be seen as a waste product, for the old can be as meaningful as the new and the difference, a thing of real value.

Structured documentation has transformed the world of publishing with the ability to be treated like a database, capable of an infinite number of outputs. But structured documentation demands sophisticated management, not just to facilitate the creation and editing of documents but to manage the process of change.
