Authoring tool conformance

Specifies conformance requirements for Lightweight DITA (LwDITA) authoring tools.

The OASIS DITA Technical Committee designed LwDITA to be accessible to the largest possible set of content contributors. Hence, the conformance requirements for LwDITA authoring applications are intentionally minimally specified, particularly for the HDITA and MDITA authoring formats. Plain-text editors are considered viable tools for authoring HDITA and MDITA formats.
