10 November 2010 at 05:09 PM by John Rankin - use a wiki to produce a book
Changed lines 17-19 from:
The idea behind [[Wikipublisher]] is that while all digital content belongs on the Web, readers may wish to print articles of interest and read them off-line. A high quality reading experience requires careful attention to detail in preparing the printed material. On the other hand, authors want a productive writing and editing environment, that makes it easy to publish content on the Web and in print.

We are long time users of [[Adobe FrameMaker -> http://www.adobe.com/products/framemaker/]] and want printed output from the wiki to be as good as `FrameMaker produces. This is a demanding requirement; Wikipublisher is the result of a research and development project we undertook to meet it.

Using Wikipublisher, you can turn Web content into letters, articles, reports, books, and presentations. This goes beyond "convert wiki pages to `PDF" -- you can ''re-purpose'' the content into a new form, designed for printing.

You
can publish everything you do ''online first, print later''. Enjoy!

Changed lines 22-23 from:
We are a consulting company in Wellington, New Zealand. In 2001, we concluded that Web-based collaborative authoring has many advantages over a word processor. This led us to adopt wikis as a simple, low cost publishing mechanism. When we introduced wikis to our clients, they loved the immediacy and their ability to contribute if they wished. They also wanted to print the results, but printed Web pages are just not good enough.

The Wikipublisher Project is an on-demand typesetting engine for turning Web pages into beautiful print documents.

!!!!Print on demand

The idea behind [[Wikipublisher]] is that all useful digital content belongs on the Web, but readers may wish to print articles of interest and read them off-line. A high-quality reading experience requires careful attention to detail in preparing the printed material. On the other hand, authors want a productive writing environment, that makes it easy to publish content on the Web and in print.

The goal of the Wikipublisher Project is to automate creation of well laid out print documents from collections of Web pages. This frees up authors to focus on the content.

!!!!Why we created Wikipublisher

We are a consulting company, based in Wellington, New Zealand. In 2001, we asked ourselves a big question: "What happens if we put the World Wide Web at the heart of all our business processes?" We concluded that Web-based collaborative authoring is the future; the word processor is becoming obsolete.

This led us to become enthusiastic adopters of wikis as a simple, low cost, collaborative authoring mechanism. When we first introduced wikis to our clients, they loved the immediacy and the fact that they could contribute if they wished. And they wanted to print the results.

We have been long time users of [[Adobe FrameMaker -> http://www.adobe.com/products/framemaker/]] and want printed output from the wiki to be as good as what `FrameMaker produces. This is a demanding requirement -- printing from a Web browser is just not good enough. Wikipublisher is the result of a research and development project we undertook to meet it.

!!!!A choice of document types

Using Wikipublisher, you can publish letters, articles, reports, books, and presentations. This is not just "convert wiki to pdf" -- we ''re-purpose'' the content into a new form.

Enjoy!
