Publishing XML from FrameMaker 12 to a “state-of-the-art” HTML5 eReader

September 10, 2014

Multi-channel publishing using XML is not a new concept. Industries like aerospace, automotive, legal, medical, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, reference, government and education know the benefits of XML and its flexibility to adapt and change with new technologies.

HTML5 is a relatively new technology and has quickly gained momentum for developing enterprise applications, just ask the Financial Times. HTML5 is not holistic, but a group of technologies that relies on JavaScript and CSS to make it work. Offline storage usually hogs the limelight but it really is so much more.

eGloo Technologies has developed a “state-of-the-art” HTML5 eReader tekReader that consumes and displays content derived from custom XML and common vocabularies like DITA and S1000D. tekReader allows the user to read and interact with their data rich documents on popular mobile devices equipped with modern web browsers.

Built in responsive and adaptive design caters for document reading on any screen size … imagine opening up and viewing large wiring diagrams on a smartphone!  The XML content foundation also allows for MathML rendering and multiple language support. FrameMaker 12 is the perfect tool to create, edit and publish custom XML, DITA and S1000D directly to tekReader. 

This session will look at:

  • A deep dive into HTML5
  • An overview of tekReader
  • Creating and editing FrameMaker 12 documents for tekReader
  • Publishing FrameMaker 12 documents to tekReader

About our Presenter: Don is the founder and CEO of eGloo Technologies. Since 2002 he has been responsible for formulating and managing eGloo's strategic direction while identifying and capitalising on business opportunities that leverage off the company's experience and skills. Since 1988 Don has been involved with document and information management systems based on structured languages. He has been extensively involved with planning, coordinating and delivering complex data conversion and application development projects within aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, military, legal, government, pharmaceutical and reference.

Don has a close association with Adobe and has been developing Structured FrameMaker applications since the early 90’s.

Sess 1 Internet of Things:  Luxury for the Rich or Sustainable Equity for All?

The multiplication of communicative objects that take decisions without human intervention is not a simple technological phenomenon, but a complex reorganization of social interaction. Will this development enable greater equity throughout the world, or will it widen the digital gap?

Sess 2 Digital Reality: Escape to a Virtual World or Explore an Augmented Culture?

The combination of virtual reality, game theory and gamification techniques has given impulse to the development of new approaches to many aspects of life, including learning, medicine, and economics. Is this combination leading us to a closed “playground” where fantasy dominates, or can we develop an enriched contextualized culture?

Sess 3 Human Bionics: More Freedom or Electronic Slavery?

Engineered extensions of the body, such as intelligent prostheses, implants for enhanced perception and automated medical treatments are going to be the norm. They may be seen as part of a desirable future of greater autonomy and freedom, or as instruments of greater dependency and surveillance of citizens.

Sess 4 Digital Learning : Individual Adaptive Construction or Connected Social Interaction?

Education technology is developing to include multiple media combinations, in order to deal with complexity of codes, content, interactions, and cognitive processes. Some solutions favour individual adaptive learning as a personal cognitive structure, while others provide learning environments for collaborative cognitive development. How can they be merged?

About the Presenters: Ray Gallon is owner of Culturecom, a consultantancy specialized in Business Process Improvement through Communication, and co-founder of The Transformation Society. He has over 20 years' experience in the technical content industries.
