a work in progress

I am slowly working on a project to construct a publishing system that uses a web first interface to provide an editing environment which then leads to XML that can then be exported ready to be imported into a ready prepared InDesign template.

This screencast demonstrates the building of an international recipe book with contributions from various editors.
