The FrameMaker XML Author mode is specifically built for those authoring exclusively in XML. The underlying structure ensures consistency across content in a multi-author environment
A typical workflow for authoring in the FrameMaker XML Author mode comprises the following tasks:
•Create individual structured documents or include multiple documents in a DITA map or a book.
•Use the existing structured samples or create a custom structure based on DTDs.
•Include the right elements to define the flow of content.
•Use the Elements catalog or keyboard shortcuts to insert new elements for text, images, tables and other objects.
•Use the Structure view to navigate through your document and also move elements around. The Structure view also indicates the validity of your document against the underlying structure.
•Author in any of the supported formats:
–XML documents (.xml)
note: You cannot open unstructured documents in the FrameMaker XML Author mode. This mode also does not include the multichannel publishing feature.
FrameMaker XML Author is also available as a separate standalone product.
