Hi! I am Jim Maivald and this is InDesign CS5: Dynamic Publishing Workflows in XML. XML is being used everywhere these days. On the web, in print, on your cell phone. It can also be used to assist designers moving content rapidly from one application to another. Being able to use the XML tools in InDesign CS5 will not only help you work faster and more efficiently; it will make you more valuable to your employer as well. In this course, we'll explore the world of XML. I'll explain the basics of the technology in plain English and show you specifically how you can use this information to make yourself a better designer or production editor.
I'll walk you through the InDesign's XML interface, the Structure pane, and the Tags panel, to show you how well this current version of InDesign works with XML-based documents. If you already work with XML files, I'll teach you how to use XML to populate your layouts with text, pictures, and even table data, with just a click of the mouse. I'll take you through a couple of projects, real-world examples of XML and InDesign working hand-in-hand. Some people worry about learning a new language, but I'll show you how a few simple tricks can help you produce hours of work in just a few minutes.
