Statement of Purpose

To develop a specification for Lightweight DITA (LwDITA), an architecture that can ease implementation by vendors and adoption by users. LwDITA will provide:

  • A simplified schema for topics and maps, with fewer elements and tighter content models.
  • Out of the box mappings and specifications for authoring topics without XML —for example, using HTML5 or Markdown.
  • A simplified specialization architecture to define new topic types.
