Installation and Setup

Provides information about installing DITA-FMx.

DITA-FMx can be downloaded from

This version of DITA-FMx supports DITA 1.0 on FrameMaker versions 7.1 and 7.2. A version that supports FrameMaker 8.0 is under development.

DITA-FMx is made up of three plugin components, one that provides import/export processing, one that provides general authoring support, and one that provides FrameMaker book generation (the book processing component is not available for FM 7.1). DITA-FMx also provides three structure applications (DTD, EDD, template, and read/write rules files), two for DITA topic and map authoring and one for book publishing. The EDD and rules files have been set up specially to allow proper interaction with DITA-FMx. If you want to build your own DITA structure applications, you should clone these files and modify them as needed.
