SGML and Office Document Management Systems: Tools for Building Code Writers

Abstract: In conjunction with research being conducted into providing computer based tools to support code users the National Research Council of Canada has also undertaken a research and development program to support the Authors of Code documents. Support for the Code Writers has been based upon the adoption of the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) as a mechanism for supporting the management, publication, and information enrichment of the code development and delivery process.All of the current National Building Code documents have been converted to SGML and an Office Document Management System (ODMS) has been implemented to support this process. In addition, a number of prototype authoring tools have been developed to both hide the code authors fromthe SGML encoding of their text and at the same time ensure that the text of the code articles are consistent with the rest of the document.
