International Experts will meet in Bologna on May 11-12 to discuss trends and topics in the field of technical communication. Frank Ralf from parson offers a workshop: "Relax, Just Do It – DITA Customization with RELAX NG".
The main conference topic is "Intelligent Information".
Workshop summary: With DITA 1.3, the schema language RELAX NG (RNG) is becoming the normative grammar. RNG is simple and easy to learn, it is written in XML syntax, and it offers features that DTDs don’t. So what is stopping us from using RNG? In this tutorial, we will cover the basics of RNG grammar, explain the differences between DTD and RNG and walk you through a topic specialization and customization. You will learn how the RNG definitions are organized: What are domains, entities, and modules? How do I remove unwanted elements? How do I add new elements?
