Arbortext 102, first book about Arbortext Styler stylesheets, published

SUNNYVALE, CA. - October 15, 2016 - Single-Sourcing Solutions CEO, Elizabeth Fraley, published her second book, “Arbortext 102” to promote best practices for new stylesheet developers creating Arbortext Styler Stylesheets. This is only the second retail book about Arbortext ever published commercially.

The book was written and published using Arbortext tools. Her easy-to-follow approach offers practical tips and pointers enabling readers to quickly get started developing dynamic and multi-channel content using Arbortext. "After seeing so many poorly developed stylesheets from 'qualified' partners show up in customer's hands," said Fraley, "I felt compelled to put a book like this together. It's a tough concept, but the Arbortext Monster Garage approach takes a new user from zero to fully-functional stylesheet in about a week. With this book and Arbortext 101, new users can do exactly what I did: Produce high-quality print and web documentation quickly."

Early reviews are overwhelmingly positive:

"I've been a tech writer for 15 plus years and have worked with numerous editing software applications/content management systems. Recently I was tasked with learning Arbortext with Windchill as a CMS. I read several books about DITA theory which were helpful, but lacked a focus on Arbortext (a DITA-based editing platform). Liz's book, Arbortext 102 (and it's predecessor Arbortext 101), has been invaluable in navigating Arbortext. I used Liz's book as a step-by-step instruction on how to use Arbortext Sytler to create stylesheets for my company. Not only was Arbortext 102 a step-by-step instruction manual, it was also easily understood. DITA concepts can be very intimidating, but Liz's book made understanding DITA concepts user friendly and accommodating." ~ Team Leader, Medical Device Company

This book has been tested with Single-Sourcing Solutions customers and rated highly by them.

The book will be available on Amazon in both print and electronic publication.
