The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) officially announced the publication of the STS (Standards Tag Suite)—an XML tag suite for the publication of standards—on 9 October 2017.
To celebrate the release of the new standard, Typefi and Inera will host a weekly webinar series on how you can best leverage STS, starting on 30 October 2017.
The continuously changing nature of law presents unique challenges for organisations creating legal content. Since publications can be outdated shortly after their initial release, many organisations have devised looseleaf publishing workflows that allow them to update and release only sections of new content as laws or interpretations change.
We know that looseleaf workflows can be complex to organise, coordinate, and implement. Not only do you have to continually release updated sections of text, you also need to ensure these changes are incorporated into the archives of the full publication so your content is current for the next edition.
Typefi was proud to sponsor the first ever XML for Standards Publishers symposium, hosted by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) on Monday, 24 April 2017, at the Library of Congress in Washington DC.
Standards have traditionally been delivered as PDF documents. However, in a world where standards are increasingly monetised through derivative products, exchanged between partners, and consumed on mobile devices, PDF does not provide the flexibility needed to meet current and future market demands.
XML provides the key to solving all these issues and more!
Legal publications often present unique formatting challenges, whether you’re producing books, journals, continuing education materials, or complex documents for legal practice.
Not only do new versions need to be updated and released at the speed the law changes and in more formats than ever before, but accuracy and attention to detail is imperative.
