Publishing complex documents today requires enriched text and multiple output formats (PDF, HTML, EPUB, Kindle). XML can be introduced at one of four stages: (1) authoring, (2) before editing, (3) before composition, and (4) after publication. In this session, we will present the pros and cons of all four approaches. Publisher case studies will be included, with an emphasis on lessons learned from various workflow failures and successes. Technology providers will describe integrated software solutions for the automation of editorial and XML operations and the creation of high-quality multi-format publications. Although the presenters will argue for the merits of one approach, attendees will learn about the opportunities and obstacles inherent to a variety of solutions to this critical publishing problem.
