Bookmark: Convert CSV-data to XML-files

Here’s a tool The Techwriting Engineer developed that transforms CSV-data into XML-data based on a template.

How it works.


Mysterious DITA-OT but still loving it. Only YES in uppercase with task labels (property name="args.gen.task.lbl" value="YES"/)


Bookmark: Inside DITA: Line Breaks

Zero Width Space - In other cases, rather than tell the renderer what words must be kept together, we may choose instead to tell it where it may break. A zero-width space will add a space for the line-break algorithm, but won’t be visible at all in the presentation of the text.


Permalink in Crosspostings

<p><a href="" target= "_blank" title="Social Blogging with Known"><img src="" alt="CMS Known" /></a></p>

At the beginning of my Known experience I pressed every button I saw. In the Site Configuration I thougt it a good idea to include permanlinks at crosspostings.

Then I wrote a status update this way:

Eliot @drmacro in the Dita-Users-Group: At the Moment the Dita4Publisher code only works with DITA-OT 1.8.5 .

So it appeared in Twitter:

Tweet with known permalink

But where are the hashtags? It took me several tweets to realize that they were missing. And 2 another tweets to remind this permanent link button. After switching to no again, tweets include the hashtag again.
