|Our New Tool for Your Organization—An Information Modeling Aid |
Use the DITA Information Modeling Deck to plan your DITA implementation and create your DITA information model. The DITA Deck describes the technical content subset of DITA elements, including the six primary topic types, map and bookmap, common block and inline elements, and metadata elements. Each card contains best practice guidelines to help you choose which elements you need, and the content models to help you further define the element structure most appropriate to your content. Use your sorted and annotated cards as a specification for any necessary constraints development, as well as a quick reference to your information model. https://comtech-serv.com/product/dita-deck/
