Chapter Seven. XML

In addition to the controls that affect formatting and presentation, InCopy has an arsenal of tools related to structuring the content of a story with Extensible Markup Language.

This chapter is all about working with the XML structure of your InCopy stories. It’s worth looking into how InCopy and, in turn, InDesign use this powerful technology to give your stories a logical structure and make it easier to repurpose your content in other formats and publishing mediums. There are many excellent books out there about using XML, so we’re going to keep this chapter fairly elementary, limiting it to a discussion of XML in InCopy. If your publication has technical experts who are implementing XML in your InCopy/InDesign workflow, by all means read this chapter and then share it with your technical team. You’ll have a better grasp of what they do, and they’ll have a better understanding of how InCopy can use XML. You won’t be an XML expert at the end of this chapter, but you’ll be able to contribute to a publishing workflow that relies on XML.
