Dr Strangebook or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love XML


1:00pm, Friday 7 May 2004


About two years ago the database papers in the Information Science Department started to migrate towards an XML based document creation infrastructure (from a mixture of PowerPoint and LaTeX). We are now at the stage where many of our course materials are generated from XML source documents, enabling us to produce both web and print formats from the same source file. This seminar discusses why we did this, how we got to where we are, the pitfalls that we encountered, what tools you need to do this yourself, and where we plan to go next.
