The wiki is provided by the OASIS standards consortium as a collaborative tool for members of the OASIS DITA Technical Committee, who are permited to post to these pages. As this is an official workspace of the TC, the OASIS IPR Policy and other OASIS rules apply to its use. To learn more about the work of the TC, send a comment, or join this effort, visit the OASIS DITA TC homepage.

This is the official community gathering place and information resource for the DITA OASIS Standard. DITA builds content reuse into the authoring process, defining an XML architecture for designing, writing, managing, and publishing many kinds of information in print and on the Web. The standard is advanced through an open process by the OASIS DITA Technical Committee, a group that encourages new participation from developers and users. This is a community-driven site, and the public is encouraged to contribute content.
Framemaker DITA Forum (Yahoo framemaker-dita mailing list).
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 and product support portals on the Web. This document is a roadmap for DITA: what it is and how it applies to technical documentation.

FrameDITA-lite (FDL) works with Adobe FrameMaker to create output that is compliant with the DITA specification. It is tested with FrameMaker 7.2 only, but seems to work with 7.0 and 7.1 releases as well. It is not DITA. Instead, we use a subset of DITA (see the link in the bottom right of this page) and allow users to create sample files or to develop a proof of concept that DITA compliant content can be created from FrameMaker when it is configured correctly.
While some are using DITA right out of the box, more than half of the organizations that put DITA into production find they have to alter it to meet their particular needs. Rockley Group can implement your DITA specialized model in a DTD, EDD, or Schema and specialize the associated stylesheets.
