For some time now, Quark has been offering an affordable end-to-end solution for managing information workflows. The publication industry calls the approach DITA (see definition below). To better educate the industry, Quark is sponsoring a free eSeminar on the evening of February 1, 2011.
In addition to the free seminar described below, Quark has a free white paper that explains the process: “Finding an Easy Path to DITA For Technical Publications”. You can download it here.
