Abstract : This report provides a description and the results of the evaluation of MlL-M-28OOlB, Markup Requirements and Generic Style Specification for Electronic Printed Output and Exchange of Text, Draft, dated 13 December 1991 in a Joint Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistics Support (JCALS) environment by testing the efficacy of using its document type definition (DTD) and Formatting Output Specification Instances (FOSI) development guidance, tag set, and output specification to produce a document instance and FOSI for existing military technical manuals. The report also provides a comparison between the use of the MIL-M-28001B conforming DTD and the modular DTDs concept developed by Accurate Information Systems, Inc., including the advantages/disadvantages of using each type of DTD and the differences in the development efforts. Samples for an Army Depot Maintenance Work Requirement (DMWR) and Air Force Depot Maintenance Manual (DMM) are provided for those document instances that were successfully developed during these tests usmg either the conforming MIL-M-28001B DTD or the modular DTDs. Sample final output for the Army Depot Maintenance Work Requirement (DMWR) and Air Force Depot Maintenance Manual (DMM) using the document instances that were successfully developed during these tests and produced on a Ventura Publishing System, is provided in the companion Report on FOSI Development.
