Migrating from Unstructured to Structured FrameMaker

Adobe FrameMaker Frequently asked questions

Migrating from Unstructured to Structured FrameMaker?

Implementing structured Adobe® FrameMaker® is both an opportunity and a challenge.
You can combine FrameMaker's powerful features with structured authoring to create a sophisticated workflow. Within this new authoring environment, you can automate formatting, create, edit, and publish XML-based content, and enforce required document structures.
The challenge is that building a structured workflow requires you to master new tools (such as the structure features in FrameMaker), new concepts (structured authoring), and new technology (XML, structure definitions, and perhaps Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) transformation). If you have no immediate need for XML, you can implement structure in FrameMaker without providing support for XML import or export.
