I am normally a Captivate user as an eLearning developer.

Lately my company would like some Help Docs made. Luckily, I used FM in college for Technical Writing.The terminology used with FM can be overwhelming for someone who is "non-IT" such as myself. Can someone tell me the very basic differences of the various 'title terms' used with FrameMaker such as 'XML', 'DITA' ? What is the purpose and need of each? What type of user and project would want x version versus y version.-Any other clarifications you think of may be very helpful. Yes, I did Google this a few times and even took notes. I am still not sure I understand.

Also when you download FM for the first time, it asks which mode to open in. Sorry, can't recall the 3 specific choices...if you feel you may know what I am speaking of, please share and explain the uses and purpose for these as well.
