Great resource for Arbortext Users! This book is very easy to read but even better for me as a reference. The info on custom directory was worth the price of the book for me. I'll be referring to sections on dcf and pcf files as well.
At last! A book like this has been needed for many years by the Arbortext community. The writing is clear and concise,not too “tech-y” (but just technical enough), and covers everything an Arbortext configurer needs in order to set up shop with this complex software suite. The best practices shown here will result in a very clean, manageable Arbortext configuration.
[On Arbortext 101] I cover everything you need to know to get started. This is for everyone who ever had a consultant tell them "that's too hard, you can't do it yourself." Yes, you can.
I've long been frustrated by the difficulty in getting good, unbiased information about the Arbortext Editor and related products. Ms. Fraley has created an invaluable resource for consultants, evaluators, and implementors of Arbortext Editor. Beginners can appreciate the book's clear step-by-step instructions, while frequent "Expert tips" provide best practices and advice for more advanced users.
Liz's book, Arbortext 102 (and it's predecessor Arbortext 101), has been invaluable. Not only was Arbortext 102 a step-by-step instruction manual, it was also easily understood. DITA concepts can be very intimidating, but Liz's book made understanding DITA concepts user friendly and accommodating.
[On Arbortext 102] This is the first book about Arbortext stylesheets and best practices for creating them. This is the book I used to publish it and Arbortext 101 too! Once my content was written, it took me less than a day to publish it in print-ready, high-quality PDF output acceptable for printing and the ePub output too. You can't go wrong with this book!
