Publish FrameMaker XML to a new platform: HTML5 for a universal eReader

July 29, 2015

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. Off-line storage usually hogs the limelight but it really is so much more.

eGloo Technologies has developed a dramatically new 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. This includes information that has been traditionally published to 11x17 inch fold-outs for schematics and SVG diagrams.

Built in responsive and adaptive design caters ro document reading on any screen size … imagine opening up and viewing large wiring diagrams on a smart phone!  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
