Lesson 13. Using XML > Getting started

Getting started

In this lesson, you’ll take a completed InDesign layout and apply XML tags to the document. You’ll then confirm the structure of the document, export the contents as XML, and then import the XML into another InDesign layout. Before you begin, you’ll need to restore the default preferences for Adobe InDesign.

1.
To ensure that the tools and palettes function exactly as described in this lesson, delete or deactivate (by renaming) the InDesign Defaults file and the InDesign SavedData file. See “Restoring default preferences” on page 2.

2.
Start Adobe InDesign CS2.

To begin working, you’ll open an existing InDesign document.

Note

If you have not already copied the resource files for this lesson onto your hard disk from the Lesson_13 folder from the Adobe InDesign CS2 Classroom in a Book CD, do so now. See “Copying the Classroom in a Book files” on page 4.

3.
Choose File > Open, and open the 13_a.indd file in the Lesson_13 folder, on your hard disk.

4.
Choose File > Save As, rename the file ski_brochure.indd, and save it in the Lesson_13 folder.
