ExtendScript is an extended implementation of JavaScript that provides a scripting interface for FrameMaker and many other Adobe applications. An introduction to the FDK and the details on how to set up your development environment. Elements may have one or more attributes, which allow authors to associate additional information with elements. Adobe FrameMaker, which provides the capability to author, fie, and publish complex XML documents, is one popular choice.

True, there maangement ultimately a lot to learn, but the overall process is easily broken down into manageable topics. The overall format of a document is relatively simple to adjust, and template-based documents tend to be significantly easier to maintain than documents that are manually formatted.

The current release of FrameMaker, version 7. How about structured FrameMaker?

You can use MIF files with database publishing applications, which allow you to capture changing data from databases and format the data into high-quality documents containing both text and graphics information. You can link elements in the EDD to formatting in three ways:. We don’t accept products that only recognize one or two DTDs in general; why should we for tables? Sequence Indicates the order in which the child elements appear.

Element Groups Elements can be grouped under a group declaration. A longer implementation period is an acceptable cost to ensure you can build exactly what you need You do not have the technical expertise or resources available to build your own structure. The element catalog displays the element definitions defined in the EDD. The following table describes some of the factors that influence whether you will managejent a standard specification or build your own structure.

When inserting a table, the author chooses a table format. You will have problems at both ends of the spectrum:.

Each element has a name, or tag, such as Section, Head, or Configurqtion. MIF Maker Interchange Format is a FrameMaker file format that allows you to easily write external programs that convert FrameMaker document files into foreign files files in another word processing or desktop publishing formatand foreign files into FrameMaker document files. This presentation will describe and discuss the structural versus display approaches to tabular data in SGML and the author’s dream table-oriented capabilities for display-oriented Donfiguration tools, especially editors.

How to Use Both to Your Advantage Chris WheedletonSAIC “Meta” data, the descriptive data about content objects which can be found in and around document processing systems, plays a key role in providing information that drives the processing of SGML content such as printing, searching or filtering while also providing behind-the-scenes information. The following table shows a high-level analysis for a book:. Running the Validate command is similar to running a spelling checker. The template may define paragraph and character formats.

Although substantial effort is required for any XML publishing project, the return on investment can also be substantial.

The term content analysis describes a process in which you review existing documents to understand how they are designed and what implicit structure they contain. Elements can have values within a specified range of valid values. You must do a content analysis for every document type you want to create in your structured environment. Authors can add content, remove content, or re-arrange content through the structure view.

In unstructured FrameMaker, setting up an authoring environment requires only a template file. The complete API reference. You can also remove domains or individual elements. If you create a Topic element that is usable for both printed and managemrnt materials, you can minimize the number of elements in your structure definition and perhaps reuse information in both output formats.

Authors apply paragraph and character formats as they write. Using this framework, developers will be able to build a more seamless connector to FrameMaker 11 and with less effort!


However, there are key differences in the two product interfaces and in the documents that you will create, edit, and publish in each interface. Many of the element chunks of content are nested within other chunks. Elements represent pieces of a document’s content its text, graphics, and so on and together make up the document’s structure. Download the code of the sample connector. Open and frammeaker the FrameMaker INI files in any text editor such as Notepadto easily apply frammemaker configuration settings which FrameMaker checks at launch.

While editing, the author selects appropriate elements from the element catalog. Use a standard Build your own You are required to deliver content that follows the standard. Using a combination of case study and research material, this presentation will: Elements The basic building blocks of structured documents are elements.

Getting started with structured applications

You can reuse format change lists for related elements. Download the Readme for compilation instructions. However, not until recently was there a way to enforce and express formally these reusable components. XML schemas define the following: The format change lists let you provide partial formatting specifications and inherit the rest from a few base paragraph tags. XML namespaces allow the same document to contain XML elements and attributes taken from different vocabularies, without naming collisions.

FrameMaker users are familiar with paragraph and character formats as are authors who use any style-based authoring tool, including Microsoft Word with Word styles. FrameMaker retains this setting on your system until or unless you change it. Indicates that child elements can appear in any sequence but must appear at least once. You’ll also find a complete working sample implementation that takes a FrameMaker document through DTD development, SGML conversion, cleanup, editing, presentation and document management.
