Making the Most of the New Math Domains in DITA 1.3

Although many organizations have long been using MathML with DITA, DITA 1.3 will include new math domains standardizing inclusion of mathematics in DITA content. This is great news if you have any math in your content: It means that the amount of time needed to implement DITA will be shorter, and it also allows you to capitalize on your transition to XML for mathematical content. Using MathML in DITA, you’ll be able to make document-wide style changes to your equations, localize your mathematical content, and re-use or adapt the mathematics as needed.

During this session, you will learn about the following:

  • What are the benefits of MathML in DITA?
  • How to use the new DITA math domains
  • What tools can be used to publish DITA MathML
