About This Episode
Documentation exists to support the application, not just to be read. Traditionally, we have written long procedures with a great deal of overlap, and often more information than the user is seeking. Topic-based authoring with topic, concept and task allows you to write very targeted information with a high degree of reuse. Updating projects is much easier to do with DITA. Topic-based authoring is much more focused, and easier to stay on target.
