Chapter 3.1. Introduction

In Docmenta content has to be created as well-formed XHTML. Docmenta includes a WYSIWYG editor that allows to create text-based content with only minor knowledge of XHTML. However, if an author wants to edit the XHTML source directly, or if a developer has to integrate a different XHTML editor than the default editor, then more knowledge on how Docmenta uses XHTML is required. For example, a user has to know which XHTML elements and attributes need to be used to create index-terms, footnotes, figures and so on. This is described in this document as well as the rules that authors should follow, to optimize content for different output formats (e.g. HTML and PDF).
