Training: Configuration of oXygen XML

Class Description

This class is delivered as a custom workshop to apply the oXygen XML Editor to your publishing environment. This class provides you with the concepts and skills to use oXygen effectively. You get hands-on practice working with basic through advanced techniques to get the most out of your experience.

The objective is to quickly get productive in using the tool as either an author or as a developer. The class is customized to address the specific industry standards (DITA, S1000D, etc.) or proprietary DTDs or schemas that you will use in your environment. The material includes how to create and customize complete authoring environments to fit these requirements.

Dakota can customize this course to be specific to your current projects, your developers’ experience, and the programming languages with which you regularly work. Although this is not a class teaching XSLT, XPath, XQuery or XSL-FO, how these technologies are used within oXygen XML is addressed. Topics typically include:

  • Topics, maps, and metadata
  • Elements, attributes, and entities
  • Creating DITA maps
  • Inserting tables and images
  • Taxonomy and subject scheme
  • Generating ID's for elements
  • Publishing to PDF, HTML, ePub, etc.
  • Conrefs and reuse

Price $2420 per day (1 - 4 attendees)

Duration 1 Day
