Choosing an XML Standard: The Case for DocBook

Richard Hamilton


Selecting an XML standard can be confusing and frustrating. It can be difficult to separate the hype from the substance as you look at various options. This webinar makes the case for the DocBook standard, which is the most widely used XML standard for technical communication.

DocBook is used in many open-source projects and other software documentation applications. It is also used in publishing by companies like O'Reilly Media. It is supported by a strong, primarily open-source, toolset and an active community of users.

Like all standards, DocBook has strengths and weaknesses. This webinar will explore those strengths and weaknesses and will suggest when and where it makes sense to consider DocBook and when it might be better to use another standard. It will also provide pointers to the best available resources for DocBook.

  • When and where DocBook is the best choice for an XML standard
  • What are the best resources for learning more about DocBook
  • What technologies and tools are available for working with DocBook
