Live Demo Data » DTS PI-Fan on GIT

RDF metadata are extracted from Microsoft Excel sheets and even from Microsoft Word content. Word documents are converted to DITA XML, PI-Mod, HTML, Markdown, PDF and in a roundtripping process back to Microsoft Word.

PI-Fan is an open source project created by I4ICM to demonstrate the usage of the PI-class classification concept for topic-based writing.

OOXML Specification Webhelp

As Microsoft Word (OOXML) is one of the formats we convert from and to, we have to work a lot with the ECMA-376 or OOXML specification. If you have ever had access to this ~7000 pages specification, you know it's very annoying to work with this spec in PDF, Word or even printed documents. For our work we need to have a full responsive web layout, a good content navigation, syntax highlighting and of course full-text search.

So we decided to configure to extract all the information out of the Word document and to bring these documents to DITA and from here to a web help, which fulfills all the requirements for our daily business.

We started with 1st Edition from 2006, as all content is available in Word format from the ECMA-376 page. Meanwhile we got Edition 5 documents from ECMA also in Word and we will bring them to web help, within the next few weeks. So stay tuned.

We decided to make this work public to all of you.. As ECMA provides this content for free without any restrictions, have fun with this stuff. But note: this document is provided "as-is" without any warrenty. If you don't accept this, please feel free to use the original content from ECMA homepage.
