Subject: RE: [dita-help] Name for Best Practices Document

It is clearly defined in the document:

Definition of DITA Help

This topic details how the OASIS DITA Help Subcommittee defines the term DITA Help.

DITA Help, as defined by the OASIS DITA Help SC (DHSC), is:
A set of recommendations for the design and implementation of commonly recognized user assistance components using
the DITA architecture. These components include, but are not limited to, navigation components, context-sensitive
linking, embedded Help, browse sequences, associative links and window definitions. These recommendations can be
used as a foundation for the development of authoring models and tools to support solutions in a variety of formats and
for a variety of platforms.

RE: [dita-help] Name for Best Practices Document

We had an earlier discussion about the DITA Help label. I don't know if we
have minutes for it. My position was that we are in a position to
appropriate that name and define it as we see fit. And I think we did define
it in the guide. I don't have it in front of me at the moment.

Well .. not to beat this horse too much .. but if we call this something
like "DITA Help Implementation Guide", are we implying that the guide
provides information on implementing "DITA Help"? Have we defined what we
mean by "DITA Help"? There isn't really an output or deliverable called DITA
Help .. right? This might be more accurately called "DITA-Based Help
Implementation Guide" .. no I don't really like that as a title, but it is
more accurate, no?
