From a tech writer's standpoint, this would be really ideal.
We're looking at moving to XML (we're currently in Interleaf),
and have produced most of our documents in HTML as well
as in hardcopy during the last release. But it would be a GREAT
thing to be able to, once the documents are properly tagged in
XML, put all docs on a Web site and/CD-ROM, have the user
speficy which products and platforms they are using, and have
documents "create themselves." I know there are some very
XML-based products out there that will let the AUTHOR run
to make docs on the fly, but, frankly, it would be even better
have the capability to let the USER customize the final doc/Web
for their own needs.
