This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.
FrameMaker, which is at the core of the Adobe Technical Communication Suite, has long been the gold standard for writing, illustrating, and laying out technical documentation in print. With new features like support for rich media objects and powerful PDF export, FrameMaker excels at authoring online documents as well.
This Classroom in a Book (a revision of the successful FrameMaker 7 Classroom in a Book) begins with a survey of the fundamentals of FrameMaker 9: styling paragraphs, placing graphics, creating tables, adding captions, cross-references, and footnotes. Later chapters cover long-document features, such as tables of contents and indexes. Preparing content for output to print or to screen (PDF or HTML), working with Unicode (for handling foreign languages), and using DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) to structure documents using XML, round out the coverage.
All of Peachpit's eBooks contain the same content as the print edition. You will find a link in the last few pages of your eBook that directs you to the media files.
- If you are able to search the book, search for "Where are the lesson files?"
