DITAworks CMS now supports MathFlow for editing and formatting of scientific, engineering and mathematical content

LONG BEACH, Calif. and STUTTGART, Germany — June 1, 2015 — Design Science, Inc. and *instinctools have partnered to provide MathML support in DITAworks CMS (Content Management System) using Design Science’s MathFlow™ product.

MathFlow is a set of tools that enable math editing, formatting and accessibility for publishing systems.

DITAworks is a ready-to-use DITA CMS with enterprise-grade component content management functionality. It comes in two versions: DITAworks Webtop for onsite installation and DITAworks Cloud, a cloud service that provides an affordable way for users to benefit from the productivity of a modern, topic-oriented documentation using the state-of-the-art CMS infrastructure. The DITAworks product line also includes other product variants and additional modules that can be deployed as per customer requirements.
