XML is not just a format — It’s much, much more XML is often thought of as one of many “formats”. For example, a publisher might specify that they want articles delivered in PDF, html, and XML. But XML should be thought of differently to other, mostly visual, formats. The truth is that if the XML is well created, and structured carefully, then in principle all other formats can be created fully automatically from that XML. This includes Epub, Daisy reader for the blind, and any future formats which have not been envisaged yet. In this session, Kaveh Bazargan will give a demonstration of XML automatically converted into several other formats.
