Getting started with DITA

DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) is a standard for representing topic-based documents in XML. As well as a schema it defines how specific tags should be processed during publishing.

If your content conforms to the DITA specification you can make use of the resources provided with TopLeaf to accelerate your stylesheet development. The way to use these resources depends on the publishing environment you are using. There is a supplement to this documentation called the TopLeaf for DITA Guide located at that describes the available options.

See DITA processing for information about the DITA- facilities in TopLeaf. It also describes the DITA stylesheets which you can use as a starting point for your own stylesheet development.
