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

I use basically only one resource that is "in the cloud"--Scott Prentice's pop-over styled packaging of OASIS URLs in a sort of web help version. It is very easy to remember the URL, too (good domain catching, Scott!):

I can see OASIS providing browsing shells like this for each audience type, making use of the dita.xml.org domain which is not too bad to remember.

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?
