Welcome to the cover page for the DITA forum, a discussion about the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA). DITA is an XML-based architecture for creating and deploying modular technical information on varied platforms, from printed manuals to online helpsets to hierarchical information for small-screen devices.

In the forum you can get answers to your questions about DITA (first see the FAQ, linked below in Resources) and you can contribute to the future direction of DITA.

The forum is hosted by Don Day and Michael Priestley, contributors to DITA and the papers that describe DITA and how to use it (see Resources).
