Subject: Demonstration at Next Meeting

Greetings colleagues

The next DITA Help Subcommittee meeting (on Monday 1 February) will see a
revival of the demonstrations that we had in the early days. These demos
will serve a number of purposes, including stimulating discussion, keeping
us informed of developments, and opening dialogue with Help tool vendors.
Hopefully, this will ensure that we serve the Help community broadly.

The first of our demonstrations will be from JustSystems. Chris Johnson will
be explaining the new "WebHelp" transformation output in XMetal 6.0. This
output, generated through a DITA OT plug-in, provides a tri-pane interface
with TOC, index and search. If time permits, Su-Laine Yeo might also be able
to briefly show us XMetaL Reviewer. This sort of system may help us put
together documents like the Help Technologies Guide in the future.

Because the tri-pane WebHelp output is appropriate for many types of online
documents, not just Help, we have invited the DITA Web Subcommittee to join
us for the demo.

(By the way, I think I've lined up Mark Poston from Mekon in the UK for the
meeting after this one. Mark will be demonstrating a DITA-based Interactive
Electronic Technical Manual that uses an XML database and XQuery to
dynamically convert DITA content to Web 2.0-enabled HTML.)

I hope to "see" you at the meeting! It's on Monday 1st Feb, at 4:00 pm US
EST. We'll be using GoToMeeting, the joining instructions for which were
provided in the meeting notice sent yesterday.
