Editor & Publisher report giving more detail on EidosMedia’s solution for the FT. The pagination end of the Méthode CMS will be either XPress, InDesign or EidsMedia’s custom pagination system (to be announced shortly) and an XML editor Xsmile, which allows editors “to create and see stories in WYSIWYG mode”. The whole lot will be based on cascading stylesheets. “Form and content are separate, and are only brought together when we render or output content, so we can apply different style sheets to the same content,” says FT Publishing Editor William Dawkins. “The most important function is the single-copy principle.” How to tackle geometry in a system where print appears to have come last in the design process is not explained.
