If you dig around the DoD sites, some of this 
may still be out there, but the term as I 
typed it is incorrect.  It is 

Contractor Integrated Technical Information Services

Essentially, it covered everything from technical 
manuals to project schedules, etc. depending on 
who one talked to in those days.  A key idea was 
how to support distant forces and system using 
databases.  A key concept for that was concurrent 

The key term is CALS.  The final expansion was 
"Continuous Acquisition and Lifecycle Support".  
Here are some jumping in points.  The water is 
deep, so jumper beware.


Robin Cover's OASIS page also has links to 
this stuff.  I will be surprised is a lot 
of the older papers are still around.  Anogher

Anyone have a link to these papers or to get them. If some of the
paper authors are on this list, could you please consider publishing
them on the web. JPEGs scans are fine too ;-)

These will be helpful to all folks like me who came late to the party
and would atleast document history of markup and unstructured

I hope xml.com, xmlhack.com or some site establishes a repository for
this history.
