About the specification source

The DITA specification is authored in DITA. It is a complex document that uses many DITA features, including key references (keyrefs), content references (conrefs), and controlled values set in a subject scheme map.

The source files for the DITA specification are managed in a GitHub repository that is maintained by OASIS; they also can be downloaded from OASIS.

The DITA Technical Committee used the following applications to work with the DITA source:

  • Antenna House Formatter
  • DITA Open Toolkit
  • Congility Content Server
  • Oxygen Content Fusion
  • Oxygen XML Editor
  • XMetaL Author Enterprise
