It is an upcoming standard for creating structured documentation. The latest release of FrameMaker supports LwDITA out-of-the-box. You can directly create a LwDITA map or topic from FrameMaker.


FrameMaker is shipped with a simple LwDITA map and topic template which lets create LwDITA maps and topics with ease. In addition to the authoring templates, out-of-the-box publishing templates help you generate output for your LwDITA map/topics.
