Publishing Terminology Snapshot: Composition

We’re not supposed to judge books by their covers. But we also all know how a document looks – or is composed – can be critical to its success. Strong composition attracts attention, clarifies content, and draws in readers, no matter what format they view it in.

Composition experts have experience designing and deploying composition systems, including provisioning document type definitions (DTDs) and schemas, style sheets, layout and formatting services. Composition is used to process a wide range of content including professional journals, academic books, and commercial publications.

Composition is performed using desktop publishing tools such as Quark Xpress, PageMaker, 3B2, XSL FO, TopLeaf, and InDesign to translate page applications files into high-quality printed materials.
