Understanding Source Documents
Source documents are documents you create your content in using a content authoring tool such as Microsoft Word, Adobe FrameMaker, or an authoring environment that supports DITA authoring, such as Adobe FrameMaker, XMetaL, or other XML content authoring tool. After you prepare your source documents, you use your source documents to generate output. For more information about preparing your source documents, see “Preparing Adobe FrameMaker Source Documents” on page 85 and “Preparing Microsoft Word Source Documents” on page 185. For more information about generating output, see “Generating and Regenerating Output” on page 311.
