This book is about XML and, specifically, Adobe(R) FrameMaker(R) 7 .x. If you are working with a later version of Frame Maker, some procedures or settings shown in this text may need to be adjusted. This book was also written and edited using FrameMaker 7.0 and 7.1. XML is a technology buzzword and a format that definitely offers opportunities. Companies that are generating content for publishing, enterprise systems, catalogs, or the Web are looking for a way to make the content more reusable. Some companies are also interested in ways to get their information out in multiple formats to their clients. Adobe noticed this interest and has been modifying their Adobe FrameMaker software since 1998 to become a "multichannel pub- lishing solution." With FrameMaker 7 .0, Adobe implemented round- trip XML and opened a new door for enterprise information man- agement. Not only can users Open and Save As XML, but an additional XML-creation tool called Quadralay(R) Web Works(R) Publisher Standard Edition is included in every FrameMaker 7 .x installation to allow easy XML/XSL creation.
