Localization Tidbits

Posted on: December 13th, 2010

This is one of the more complicated aspects of support for ePublisher as it in encompasses every part of the process: Input (which version of FrameMaker are you running), Generation (what language and what operating system are you using) and Output (does the format have the proper support of Unicode, for example).  David Shaked, of […]

Google Chrome == Internet Yes, Desktop No

Posted on: September 22nd, 2010

Google Chrome.  You know it.  It’s that way cool, very fast browser from the folks who gave us all a better way to search.  Well, that browser, Chrome, from Google?  Sometime around March, 2010, it completely forgot that your desktop exists. What are you talking about Ben? Oh, you don’t know this story?  Sit back […]

But I'm not a developer!

Posted on: September 9th, 2010

I lack objectivity when it comes to programming. I enjoy it. Programming is problem solving. It almost always includes a reasonable explanation. Programming involves building things, and fixing and refining the things that you build.

Getting ePub output into iBooks on iPhone/iPad

Posted on: August 27th, 2010

In a recent Study Hall, someone asked how one can deploy the ePub output generated by ePublisher to an iPad.  This path has been a little unclear to me and so I promised to research and blog what I found.

Use JScript .NET instead

Posted on: August 15th, 2010

The ePublisher platform rests on top of the .NET platform.  Even though the bulk of the ePublisher processing is done with XSL, you can opt to process items with any of the .NET CLR languages rather than XSL. I published a wiki article which includes an ePublisher project that demonstrates processing content paragraphs with JScript .NET.   I […]

iBooks thoughts

Posted on: August 13th, 2010

Since the launch of ePublisher 2010.2, which included the new ePub format, I have been spending time with the iBooks app to see how I like it. That’s what I want to talk about in this article. What are my impressions, prejudices, likes, dislikes and so on.

Building a better AutoMap

Posted on: April 27th, 2010

ePublisher includes tools to create designs (Pro), stamp them out (Express), and automate builds (AutoMap).  The thing is, AutoMap, as it exists today, is not always the right fit for our users.  It offers more capability than some folks will ever leverage.  For them, AutoMap is simply too expensive.  Others make extensive use of AutoMap’s […]

Is anybody out there there?

Posted on: April 2nd, 2010

Market research is tricky business.  Knowing how to help your current customers is an easy affair (Focus, Focus, Focus).  Keep your ears open and they will tell you what they need.  Finding something new that both your current customers and potential customers find exciting is quite a bit more difficult.  I can’t ask a customer […]
