Introduction to the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Article
The Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is an XML-based architecture for authoring, producing, and delivering technical information. This article introduces the architecture, which sets forth 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 article serves as a roadmap to DITA: what it is and how it applies to technical documentation. The article also links to representative source code.
