Presentations from ‘XML for Standards Publishers’

Presentations from ‘XML for Standards Publishers’

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.
