The aim is to establish a digital process with no media discontinuity for the creation and publication of standards and documents. The structured representation in XML allows format-independent editing of standard content and thus direct use in various new publication channels. The content is stored in modularized form in a content management system; it can then be enriched with specific metadata. This will enable new ways of presenting standards in the future, and give rise to new products and services for the users of standards.
Content Management System
We are changing the production of standards over to XML (Extensible Markup Language). This enables experts and standards users to use the content flexibly and with no media discontinuity. A prerequisite for the switchover is the introduction of an XML-based content management system.
