Make the most of HTML5

Take advantage of the new HTML5 layout to enhance the content consumption experience with smaller file sizes, faster loading times, smoother transitions, and out-of-the-box support for social widgets. Easily create personalized help experiences with new dynamic content filters.
 

New HTML5 layouts
Deliver a personalized content consumption experience. Configure search to appear on the content or topic panes, and show context and breadcrumbs in the results. Easily show or hide widgets, such as glossary and TOC. Convert the layout to right-to-left languages just by changing one property.

 

 

Dynamic content filters
Empower users to find relevant content faster in the document, TOC, index, and glossary. Leverage existing conditional tags and expressions to enable end users to dynamically filter content in the final HTML5 output, thereby delivering personalized help experiences. 

 

 

Enhanced search results in HTML5 layouts
Provide greater context to end users by showing more details in search results. Configure the search results to appear on the content or topic panes, and show breadcrumbs and topic descriptions. By default, the first few sentences of the topic are shown as description, but authors can also write their own.

 

 

Enhanced DUCC output
Use the new dynamic content filters to create enhanced DUCC output that generates only one set of HTML5 files regardless of the number of expressions used. Easily migrate your current DUCC outputs to new, more efficient ones based on dynamic content filters.

 

 

Dynamic filter support in CSH
Provide more targeted contextual help with URL support in the new dynamically filtered output. Embed the selected filters in the URL and use that URL in the CSH calls. 

 

 

Optimized HTML5 output
Now experience as much as a 50% reduction in loading time, file size savings of about 20KB per topic, and smoother transitions between pages with faster, more responsive HTML5 output.

 

 

Tagged Output view
Now see how filtered content will look for different combinations of filters by easily testing dynamic content filters using the Tagged Output view. The view also shows the tags that have been applied to the generated HTML5 files. 

 

 

Out-of-the-box support for social widgets
Generate mobile output that is easily shareable on Facebook and Twitter with out-of-the-box support for social widgets provided by the new HTML5 layout. 

 

 

Custom fonts in EPUB files
Embed custom fonts in your EPUB output and ensure that your users see high-quality typography exactly as you intended, whether or not they have the font installed on their device.
Note: You must have distribution rights for the embedded font.

 

 

Maintained TOC state in HTML5 output
Work more conveniently by maintaining the TOC state—as the new responsive HTML5 output remembers the state of the books. Two or more books can be expanded simultaneously.

 

 

Single-click responsive HTML5 publishing
Generate stunning responsive HTML5 output for multiple devices with just one click, even for your legacy content. Provide a consistent user experience across multiple screen types by simply selecting a single layout from a gallery of responsive HTML5 layouts. Leverage the responsive HTML5 output to create mobile apps easily.

 

 

Responsive HTML5 layout editor
Easily customize out-of-the-box responsive HTML5 layouts to your website theme without knowledge of HTML5 or CSS3. Add a logo, match your colors to the brand palette, style widget text and icons as required, and decide which widgets are displayed for tablets, smartphones, and desktops.
