    Yes! I have been saying this since I saw my first ebook, which was full of weird hyphen- ation! Store the book once, as valid data, with the conponents identified as what they are. Then output the book in print or in whatever format is needed. then when new formats come along, you don’t need to convert your whole backfile.

    Great Ingrid!

    As devices and formats evolve faster, making content agile is important and a priority strategy for publishers.

    Thanks Ingrid, I couldn’t agree more. I believe one of the key issues, and challenges, for traditional publishing companies is to bring IT principles, practices and people into the publishing side of the business.
