Quark’s Michael Boses to Speak at the Gilbane Conference San Francisco

DENVER - 6/1/2009 - Michael Boses, director of XML technology for Quark, will speak at the Gilbane Conference San Francisco on June 4 in a session focused on strategies for creating structured content. A recognized expert on XML authoring, Boses will present the challenges around and solutions for creating XML structured content, as well as the importance of content reusability.

The conference is being held at the Westin Market Street Hotel and the session begins at 3:10 Pacific time on Thursday, June 4. For a full conference schedule and to register to attend the session “Strategies for Creating Structured Content: Word processors, Structured Editors, and Beyond,” visit www.gilbanesf.com.

Boses is co-chair of the OASIS DITA for Enterprise Business Documents Subcommittee, and a frequent conference speaker where he shares his real-world experiences in helping organizations succeed with XML. On a daily basis he collaborates on projects that involve moving hundreds of users to XML authoring, and realizes that no matter what the size, project success comes down to improving each author's user experience and productivity.

About XML and DITA
To achieve consistency and avoid redundancy in technical documentation, technical writers adopted XML early to repurpose their content and manage complex documentation. XML became the de facto standard for structuring intelligent documents, with DITA emerging as the next step in complex document management. DITA, the Darwin Information Typing Architecture, is an XML-based OASIS standard that enables the creation and management of re-usable content for complex documents.
