Bernard Aschwanden talks about choosing content management tools

Bernard Aschwanden, principal of Toronto’s Publishing Smarter , talks about choosing content management tools and the importance of considering their interoperability. When choosing your XML editor, it’s important that the tool keeps clean XML code so that files can be shared between authors using different tools.
