Charter

To develop a specification for a lightweight DITA architecture that can ease implementation by vendors and adoption by users. The architecture will provide:
- Easy out of the box authoring for common topic types
- Out of the box mappings and specifications for authoring these topic types in other formats, such as HTML5 or markdown
- Easy assembly of new specializations from existing section types
- Easy creation of new specializations by generation from a topic type designed for specifying specializations

Description

Developing Lightweight DITA (LwDITA): an architecture to ease DITA implementation and adoption.
