Standards have been traditionally delivered as PDF documents. Yet in a world where standards are increasingly monetized through derivative products, exchanged between partners, and consumed on mobile devices, PDF does not provide the flexibility needed to meet current and future market demands.
The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) is hosting this event for standards publishers as an aid to the understanding of how XML provides the key to solve all of these issues, improve publishing processes, and bring business value to the organization.
Attendees at this symposium will learn how XML can:
* Facilitate interoperability between standards organizations
* Aid content reuse for additional products and revenue
* Reduce costs to publish with standards-based publishing systems
* Create multiple publication formats for different devices
* Support accessible publications for the visually impaired
