structured content reuse

Sent by Rob DeFelice on 13 January 2004 10:10


Guys

You need to take a look at FatWire Content Server. It
gives you the choice of web forms or Word as the
authoring tool. You can even drag and drop entire
documents that have been contructed elsewhere (even
from a DM system for complex documents)if you want
them managed in that way.
