Word Standards to Support Single-Sourcing
To define your Microsoft Word standards, create a template .dot file with all the elements you need in it, including styles, variables, autotext, toolbars, macros, and page layouts. You can use this file to create all new source documents and to update the styles, autotext, toolbars, and macros in existing source documents. You can also use this file to create a source document to include in your Stationery design project.
The following sections describe various template areas and considerations, and how to effectively design your Microsoft Word template to support single-sourcing with ePublisher.
