Click on image to see comparisonThe latest news is that Adobe has a FrameMaker version with DITA capabilities. Then we also have Adobe Technical Communication Suite with these components:
- FrameMaker 8
- RoboHelp 7
- Adobe Captivate 3
- Acrobat 9 Pro Extended
So it all has to do with how content is written. Ideal single-source content should be without hyperlinks or linked references but in reality that is not possible. So why DITA? "DITA provides a standard for structuring topics and content within topics. This standard is based on three broad information categories into which almost all technical information can be classified: task, concept, and reference."
Yet the question remains: how much of information do we really reuse?
