Bob Thomas shows how to use a freely available alternative DITA DTD framework to rapidly configure and constrain the DITA technical content reference DTDs by changing settings in a single configuration file. It is possible to reduce the number of elements that writers have to choose by as much as 50 percent.
What can the audience expect to learn?
Non-expert users can use this framework to rapidly configure and constrain the DITA technical content reference DTDs. Removing unwanted element choices from DITA reduces training, improves quality, and makes using DITA easier.
