How it Works

  1. Click here to download your trial version of SiberSafe Styler limited to the sample content included in the installation package.
  2. In a Word document, using a two-column table, you simply match Word-based styles with XML element types or XPath expressions. Then you add stationary information, such as title page graphics and caution/warning icons, until this template document meets the design requirements for your published documentation.

  3. From this template, SiberSafe Styler automatically produces an XSLT stylesheet that can then be used to process any XML document that complies with your schema or DTD. You can now use your automatically generated XSLT stylesheet to transform into WordML as many documents as you like, without SiberSafe Styler being involved.

  4. Once you transform your XML content into WordML, you can use Word to go into PDF, DOC(X), RTF, HTML and a multitude of other formats supported by Word.

A cost-effective alternative to XSLT scripting

For technical documentation teams working with XML-based content, the cost of styled publishing transformations can be significant. Traditional transformation frameworks, such as XSLT, that ensure a specific look and feel to published documentation are often difficult and costly to develop, and equally expensive to maintain. SiberSafe Styler dramatically reduces your XSLT stylesheet maintenance and development costs.

SiberSafe Styler reduces the complexity of XML publishing transformations; delivering a simple, fast, cost-effective alternative to XSLT scripting that enables non-technical users to easily yet comprehensively control the look and feel of their output, without programming. SiberSafe Styler leverages Microsoft Word's XML capabilities and familiar document formatting interface.

No XSLT scripting skills required

Using Styler, you can design complex printable layouts with automatically rendered Tables of Contents, book- and chapter-level title pages, graphical footers/headers, page numbering, section numbering, multi-level bullet and numbered lists, complex tables, and more. All with no programming or XSLT scripting skills. SiberSafe Styler comes with default DITA and DocBook templates giving you a great starting point, as well as a good example and room to experiment.

It's simple, it's fast, it's cost-effective, and it keeps you in control.
