    Media Neutral Content

    Fred12345999

      Folks,

       

      My employer is pushing for "Media Neutral Content." The concept is that you would store the data once in XML and be able to automatically convert to different formats: HTML, ebooks, PDF.

       

      The problem in implementation is that the concept creators thing in terms of linear content that maps up to HTML.

       

      What happens with content that, in print, should have figures text wrapping around and that kind of complexity?

       

      Is there some kind of InDesign-related solution to this problem?

       

      I also share the observation that this problem would seem to be more solvable if one starts from the format of a book and convert that to [say] HTML, rather than having something HTML-like and trying to convert it to a printed book.
