DCL can convert your data from any format to any format, but most clients choose to transition their content into high-performance electronic formats like XML. Within XML (or SGML) are DTDs, standards, or schemas—all of which refer to sets of rules that determine the structure of the content.
There are a multitude of public domain DTDs and standards from which to choose. Since these public domain DTDs are free and widely used, there are many tools available to make using them easier. Their widespread use also makes it possible to transfer data between your own projects or even among multiple organizations. Common public domain DTDs include S1000D, DITA, DocBook, the NLM journal publishing DTD, and TEI/TEI Lite.
While public DTDs are the most commonly used, there are hundreds of different XML (or SGML) DTDs and standards written for specific document types or industries—and DCL can convert your data to conform to any of them.
