DITA for Print
A DITA Open Toolkit Workbook
By Leigh W. White
Publisher: XML Press
Released: December 2013

As DITA has become more and more popular, demand has increased for tools that can produce high quality PDFs from DITA content. The DITA Open Toolkit provides a basic PDF capability, but nearly any real-world application will require customization. Leigh White's new book, DITA for Print, takes you through the process of building a print customization plugin for the DITA Open Toolkit that will give you control over your PDF output.

DITA for Print is for anybody who wants to learn how to create PDFs using the DITA Open Toolkit without learning everything there is to know about XSL-FO, XSLT, or XPath, or even about the DITA Open Toolkit itself. DITA for Print is written for non-programmers, by a non-programmer, and although it is written for people who have a good understanding of the DITA standard, you don't need a technical background to get custom PDFs up and running quickly.

    I would definitely recommend for anybody, who is working with DITA XML.
    It does a great job in guiding through the many xsl files, the templates, and the attributes they contain.
