Multiple format usage in Orlando
Orlando technical data publishing framework can handle multiple formats.
Besides the original data delivery formats (SGML, XML, CGM, VRML, PDF, etc.), Orlando manages target publishing formats:
- main formats for text data like HTML and PDF
- main formats for 2D and 3D media such as SVG and X3D, that can be used natively in recent browsers without additional plugin installation
A format generated by Orlando can be used as a source format for a further Orlando publishing step. For instance, the generated HTML pages can be further indexed for a more efficient “WYSIWYG” search, that is to say: what is being searched is actually what is viewed by the user.
