Customizing DITA Output Isn’t as Hard as You May Think

Presentation Abstract

One thing new DITA users find tricky is getting output to look just right.

The default output from the DITA Open Toolkit is meant to be customized, but if you’ve never used a toolchain like this it can be tough to know where to start.

This presentation outlines the types of things you can easily change without spending money, where to ask for help, and what to do if you need more complex changes.

What can attendees expect to learn?

Users will gain a better understanding of what they can change without resorting to commercial solutions.
