We succeeded. Then we needed to clarify those proposal to technical adoptors. back, i believe we've got succeeded. we've realized a lot approximately SGML within the means of imposing it. those studies needs to now even be shared, besides understandable info at the lan­ guage itself. The be aware needs to circulate out of the lab and the pc heart and succeed in the company humans, the clients, the movers and shakers. the subsequent new release will do issues with SGML that we won't even think but- it truly is that versatile.

PROBLEMS INHERENT IN EXISTING SYSTEMS The systems used currently to produce technical support documentation materials have many inherent problems that cause costs to be high, extended time frames for producing materials, and a lack of overall control of the materials. There may be multiple systems used to produce the same materials in one or more locations.

CHAPTER • • 1 / YOUR PUBLISHING SYSTEM IS BROKEN! 13 Storage of multiple copies of graphic and textual information used in multiple places may use excessive disk space and make tracking, managing, and updating complex and time-consuming. Many people may be required to handle and update a document during the revision cycle. Improvements are needed in routing, tracking, and accessing the documents as they are passed to essential personnel. Also, non-value-adding steps such as manual transfer of files or change of status should be either eliminated or automated.

GENERIC MARKUP Another improvement was the simplification of the complex coding through the use of generic commands that were interpreted into several detailed procedural markup commands by the typesetter. This combination of several commands into a single generic code is sometimes referred to a macro or "gencode". The use of generic markup also simplified the application and reading of markup since the markup could be made more readable and impart meaning. For instance, all the typesetting commands required to set a bold, centered head in 18 point Helvetica on 20 points ofleading could be executed every time a single mnemonic code was encountered in text, such as: :chapter.
