XML and Structured Authoring Training

This course is an Introduction to XML and explains how XML can fit into a technical publishing environment. Writing Structured Documents requires all contributors to look at content differently. This course explains how structure changes the publishing workflow and the advantages and disadvantages of these changes.

XML Training Essentials

This course introduces the eXtensible Markup Language, or XML, including basic grammar and XML validation using DTDs or XML Schema. Students learn to read and to hand-write XML well-formed XML documents, and then proceed to modeling concepts, first learning the basic DTD language and then studying namespaces and XML Schema. The course closes with a chapter on important XML-related technology such as XSLT.

This comprehensive course provides a full tour of the most prevalent XML standards, and introductory-to-intermediate training in each: XML itself, XML Schema, XSLT, and XSLFO. This is a great fit for students who are planning to work extensively with XML in the near future, as it gives a good grounding in how to manage XML information, define XML models (using XML Schema), transform XML information to text, HTML, or other XML formats (using XSLT), or to print-ready PDFs (using XSLFO).

XSD & DTD Design

This XML DTD Design is a hands-on course that introduces you to the basics of DTD design. You will learn to structure a DTD with readability in mind. You will learn how to create a well-formed and valid document which meets the specifications laid down in the DTD or schema structure and follows the rules for element and attribute names; contains all essential declarations, and has properly nested elements.

XSL in Content Transform

Planning and Implementing your Content Conversion

This class provides you with the concepts and skills to define and document the steps to be taken to gather, prepare, convert, and load converted content into a new system.

CMS Planning
This class provides you with the concepts and skills to understand CMS Planning Methodology. You will learn the steps necessary to ensure a smooth transition to a Content Management System. Such steps are researching and analyzing stakeholders needs, business goals, technical objectives and technology constraints. XSLT for Publishing.

XSLT Content Transformation
This class provides you with the concepts and skills to develop in-depth knowledge and skills in transforming XML documents using eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformations, or XSLT. Students work through extensive hands-on exercises in transformations from XML to plain text, HTML, and XML, with good grounding in XPath along the way. Intermediate and advanced techniques are also covered including variables and parameters, callable templates, sorting and grouping, tail recursion, working with multiple documents, and XSLT extensions.

XSLT for Publishing
This course covers the practical business basics for the use of XSLT for Publishing. Students will learn what transformation is, what XSLT can mean for editorial and production, what is easy to accomplish using XSLT and the preparations needed to use XSLT.
