Lightweight DITA (LwDITA) is a simplified version of DITA. It consists of a much smaller set of elements, attributes, content models, and features. 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.
