In Depth Information
This chapter has given you a closer look at three key areas in which XML
support in Office 2003 is put to good use: smart documents, smart tags, and
InfoPath. Smart documents provide a great opportunity for developers to create
custom solutions–based templates that are tailored to the needs of information
workers in specific industries; smart tags enable businesses and developers to
provide workers with pertinent contextual links and actions related to their
work in a specific document; and InfoPath digitizes data capture from common
business process forms and saves all the information in industry-standard XML.
These progressive, exciting additions to Office 2003 allow organizations and
individuals to capture data more intentionally, share it more easily, and use it
more efficiently, in individual applications, across team projects, or throughout
an entire enterprise system.
