XML files, DITA and the Open Toolkit

Hi,

I've seen a few threads here that offer only a dearth of information about managing XML files and setting up the Alfresco environment for using DITA.  All the online Alfresco demonstrations center around MS-Office files, which we do not use.

Am I missing something here?  I mean, XML & DITA appear to be on their way to becoming the de facto standard data type for serious documentation (heck even MS is trying to claw its way in to the XML file format market space).  I would've thought that the Alfresco team would be all over XML with gusto–number one priority, leave .doc in the dustbin of history, that sort of thing.

Can we use Alfresco for our preferred doc production environment, storing/managing DITA-based XML files & producing aggregate docs using the Ant-driven Open Toolkit?


Thanks for all insights.
