More future proofing information
Speaking of future proofing your information, Mark discusses CMS and information reuse. One quote that brings this to light is:
This ties you to your content management system. The further removed your raw data is from your published form, the harder it will be to migrate away from the tools that convert one to the other.
Mark also discusses how using HTML he then created PDF files of his Dive into Accessibility essays. HTML has much of the semantic tools needed and the structure to provide a reusable information repository.
