Structured Authoring Techniques Consultancy Services
Structured authoring is a methodology for writing and arranging content using strict
rules to control the way the text is marked up, and with the intention of using
the semantics of document elements as a basis for markup. Structured authoring separates
content from presentation; information is labelled according to its purpose. This
type of authoring is sometimes called content-based writing.
Structured authoring is attracting a lot of interest in technical
communication, because it promises
a number of business benefits, including improved documentation process efficiency,
usability and consistency.
It is a dramatically different approach to conventional style-based technical authoring;
new skills and techniques need to be learned. The most appropriate
workflow needs to be devised, and new tools need to be learnt.
