Subject: RE: [dita] Which version of the DITA 1.2 spec do you use, and why?

We have a CHM version saved on a server for all of our writers to reference.


I usually use the HTML version because it opens automatically from the OASIS site. I can maneuver through this version with little difficulty. Searching the HTML presents the same issue Kris mentions for the PDF. But, I guess I don’t really search the spec that often.


I’ve tried the PDF on occasion. For me, opening the PDF from the OASIS site takes close to 7 minutes. I can usually have my answer from the HTML by that time.

The DITA 1.2 spec was delivered in the following formats:

  • XHTML hosted on the OASIS Web site
  • CHM
  • PDF
  • DITA source
  • ZIP of XHTML file that can be used locally (late addition, available from TC home page, probably no one knows about it)

Which format do you use? If you use multiple formats, when and why?
