XML for Publishers


XML is central to many exciting publishing initiatives, especially bringing
existing content to new media and devices. For nearly all publishers, forging
into the future will involve XML. High-level and business-oriented, this session
will peek under the hood to see what’s happening without dwelling on technical
details. It will give you a concrete, practical explanation of XML and what it
can do for you, highlighting the key facts businesspeople need to know in order
to make decisions, increase efficiency, and drive change in your organization.
It will also feature a participatory demonstration that will give you a true
sense of XML’s power and importance. It will conclude with a discussion on the
future of XML, a discussion of XML support in publishing software, and a look
into the XML-based innovation some publishers are making today.
