WritersBlock Technical Communications: Collaborative Authoring

"We chose XEP for its professional layout capabilities, including widow/orphan control, hyphenation, solid rendering engine, and superlative PDF output."

David Priest, Editor, WritersBlock Technical Communications

XEP Engine

Docutils

reStructuredText

CVS

For the current primary client, the company has migrated from proprietary long-document authoring software (Corel Ventura) to a unique and powerful workflow that permits multiple authors, version control, publishing on demand, and has eliminated all proprietary software requirements.

This workflow is based on ReStructuredText, a human-readable markup convention that is transformed into XML through the use of Docutils, an open-source project. The XML is then transformed using XSL FO (XSLFO) to produce ready input for XEP. The XSL FO (XSLFO) transformation handles everything from standardized title-page layout through chapter content runs, sidebars, and indexing. XEP then performs an automated build each evening, generating publication-quality PDFs for use the next morning.

The client is now able to encourage engineers and technicians to directly contribute to the documentation via text source check-in via CVS, the editor to monitor and finesse these contributions, and to provide the customers with up-to-date manuals specific to the particular software/hardware combination they possess. It has been a significant improvement in both workflow and costs.
