XML, or Extensible Markup Language, was created to structure, store and transport information. XML is used for platform- and implementation-independent exchange of data between computer systems - especially via internet. It can be called "technology to make data exchange simpler". The variety of data that can be described with XML is nearly limitless.
Do you want to use XML data for many different purposes? For example, as HTML for online delivery and PDF for personal convenience? We can help with processing, transformation and improvement.
XML for Print Media
In publishing XML has become a standard and can easily be used as a starting point for different forms of electronic publication, such as websites, Ebooks, and more. But when XML articles must be published in print format certain typesetting and layout challenges must be overcome.
Makrolog offers different solutions to generate print editions from XML data sources. Depending on your requirements, we can provide tools based on XML-formatting objects (XSL:FO) or on the functionality of Adobe InDesign which are can handle even the most sophisticated projects. InDesign has very powerful but not well known tools for importing XML data into preconfigured layouts that can be converted to PDFs for printing. This functionality can be used either for publishing database content or for special print on demand solutions such as catalogues based on specific enterprise resources.
