Quark has announced Pubs-XML Accelerator, the fourth generation of Quark’s commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) publishing solution for the intelligence community.

Pubs-XML Accelerator plugs into Quark XML AuthorTM for Microsoft Word to allow any Microsoft Word user to encode XML content for classification, declassification, handling, and dissemination and readies the content for delivery to XML, HTML, PDF, and Microsoft Word formats. The new version of Pubs-XML Accelerator supports Pubs-XML v5, the XML data encoding specification for intelligence publications.

Pubs-XML Accelerator was introduced at the Quark XML Author and Pubs-XML Accelerator User Group Meeting held recently in Washington, DC. With mouse clicks, Quark XML Author and Pubs-XML Accelerator allow users to assign document-level metadata to specific content for topical assertions and source citations or add security markup to sensitive documentation. The new version of Pubs- XML Accelerator adds:

° Support for Pubs-XML 5, including a new document root structure (Intel Doc now replaces report, article, and analytical packet);

° Support for Atomic Energy dissemination controls;

° Support for Controlled Vocabulary Enumeration (CVE) documents;

° Support for 12/10 CAPCO updates, Information Resource Metadata (IRM), Need to Know (NTK), ISM v5;

° Productivity and flexibility advancements, including: 206 sourcing; support for Microsoft Word 2003, 2007, and 2010; increased performance for large documents; integration with MathType and support for MathML and inline equations; and support for multiple mixed content types in table cells.
