OASIS members and other interested parties,
OASIS and the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) TC are pleased to announce that Lightweight DITA: An Introduction Version 1.0 is now available for public review and comment.
Lightweight DITA (LwDITA) is a simplified version of DITA, the Darwin Information Typing Archtecture. In comparison to DITA 1.3, LwDITA has a smaller element and attribute set, stricter content models, and a reduced feature set.
LwDITA also defines mappings between XML, HTML5, and Markdown, enabling authoring, collaboration, and publishing across different markup languages.
The documents and related files are available here:
