Course Introduction and Overview:
Many Web publishing initiatives produce Web pages using adhoc tools and
methods without standardization or automation. It is possible to create
professional looking Web pages with low up front costs and immediate results,
but this strategy runs into problems when Web publishers want to reuse,
revise or retarget their material. This is where the strategy of sustainableWeb
publishing comes in, based on a powerful enabling technology such as Standard
Generalized Markup Language (SGML) to support authoring, assembly and delivery
of complex technical information in a repeatable, automated way.
This intensive course provides attendees with an understanding of SGML and
the developmental processes that support multiple delivery formats for the
same information, significant information reuse, and robust Web site strategies.
This course is aimed at technical implementors and covers both concepts
and technical details. Strategies and tactics are explored through hands-on
exercises and experimentation with a variety of tools and document types.
This course is designed for all computer professionals involved with the
World Wide Web and the Internet including: web masters, web developers and
planners, on-line publishing editors, intranet project managers, programmers
who have to make the intranet work, internet strategizers, information developers,
client-server developers, applications programmers, network and system administrators
and managers, and those individuals who are thinking of building a Web server.
