Structured Content Authoring for All!
Many say “Structured Content Authoring is too complex.” But organizations have no choice: to keep content consistent, findable and manageable, we simply must write and store in a structured format.
Semantic tagging, re-use, targeting, conditions, references, all are essential and valuable features that form the essence of Structured Content schemas. If we simply ‘strip complexity’ –for ‘lightweight authoring’- chances are fair that we lose much of this value.
The question is: how to make Structured Content Authoring a mainstream activity?
Jan Benedictus has been working in structured content since 1996. As founder of web-agency “Liones” he has helped many publishers to migrate from paper to online publishing. In 2012 Jan founded FontoXML, web-based XML editor for non-XML experts. He and his team develop and implement structured authoring solutions for many different organizations.
