|Introduction à DITA / DITA contexte et principes
La norme est disponible sur le site OASIS open et répartie en différentes sections.
Base DITA includes the topic, map elements, metadata, classification, and specialization elements. It also includes domains for hazard statement, typographic, and utility elements.
Previously, the document types and specializations for technical content were included as an integral part of the base DITA specification. With the release of DITA 1.2 and the increasingly number of specializations that are part of the DITA specification, the document types and specializations for technical content have a dedicated section in the DITA specification.
DITA 1.2 introduces the Learning and Training specialization, which is designed for developing instructional materials. It contains all of base DITA and some (but not all) parts of the Technical Content package.
Base elements include the core DITA topic and map elements that are the building blocks for other specializations as well as several basic specializations that are not applicable to a specific information domain.
Elements in the technical content section include the original Concept, Task, and Reference specializations, as well as the Bookmap and Glossary specializations added with DITA 1.1. It also includes domains designed primarily for technical content, such as the task requirements and software domains.
Elements in the Learning and Training section include specialized topic types designed for learning and training content, as well as specialized domain elements for organizing learning content within maps, specifying learning metadata, and describing learning interactions.
Many DITA attributes are reused in groups or are too complex to describe in the usual table cell format. Those attributes are collected in this section.
