A naïve question, I suspect, but on the one hand we have FrameMaker with a "save as XML" option, on the other hand we have InDesign with an "Import XML" option. Are these two visions of XML on speaking terms?
Not necessarily because XML is just a way of defining markup for content. As a simple example, consider these two XML snippets:
<title>War and Peace</title>
<author>The Guy that Wrote It</author>
Both of them have a <title> element, but they mean two different things, depending on how the structure was designed. The structure of an XML document is usually specified in a DTD or schema.
Good! that actually confirms my suspicions, as well as making perfect sense.
