If I were managing a group of technical writers - large or small - I would definitely be using information types. However, in my case I'm managing an XML CCMSjrhooker
The Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is an XML-based, end-to-end architecture for authoring, producing, and delivering technical information. This architecture consists of a set of design principles for creating "information-typed" modules at a topic level and for using that content in delivery modes such as online help, books, and Web sites.
DITA is defined by the OASIS DITA Technical Committee (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/dita/), and implemented by an Open Source toolkit at SourceForge (http://dita.xml.org/wiki/the-dita-open-toolkit). DITA community resources may be found at the OASIS DITA Focus Area (http://dita.xml.org).
This group supports users of DITA. For posting or inquiring about jobs, please see http://dita.xml.org/jobs .
