Single Source Publishing
Stylesheet Development | System Integration

TopLeaf excels when your XML content must be delivered in several formats and/or must be delivered at frequent intervals.
Define the styling requirements for multiple output formats with a single stylesheet in a fraction of the time required by traditional methods.

Create your stylesheet using TopLeaf’s Mapping and Page Layout Editors.
Typeset your content, then use the TopLeaf Mapping Assistant to verify that your stylesheet rules meet your publishing requirements.
A TopLeaf stylesheet declares a set of rules that interpret DITA and XML markup as context-sensitive formatting instructions. The rules work together to transform your content into PDF, RTF, HTML and eBooks.

 

Create and maintain document styles using TopLeaf’s stylesheet development toolkit. Store those stylesheets within your CMS, and then generate output documents on demand.
TopLeaf is perfect in automated environments, including server-based integrated applications based around content management systems (CMS).
TopLeaf’s API interface integrates easily with popular DITA and XML authoring tools and third party applications.

Your Benefits
