Quark Inc. today 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 Author 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.
