XML Workflow Diagram
This diagram, which appears in appendix A in the 16th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style, represents a simplified XML workflow. In this case, an XML-tagged book manuscript is used as the basis of print, e-book, and web versions of the publication. Any artwork is processed and converted as appropriate and integrated into each version before publication. For a more detailed overview of XML and of electronic markup in general, see appendix A. For a detailed discussion of manuscript preparation, editing, and proofreading—fundamental to any publishing workflow but not represented in this diagram—see chapter 2.
