Target Audience and Purpose of the Course

The course is aimed at individual students with little or no exposure to XPP prior to taking the course. Students will benefit most from this course if they have already been exposed to or worked with non-XPP page composition systems. Further benefits will accrue to those students who have experience with XML markup. This course is for style developers, page editors, productions managers and XPP administrators.

Course participants will get an introduction to XPP and learn how to use the XPP user interfaces to navigate and work inside documents. This course will prepare participants to import XML, create and modify documents, use XPP style libraries, output to print and PDF and export HTML. This is a broad introduction to XPP and a must for all business users.
