Open Document Format processing modules

The odt transformation creates a binary file using the OASIS Open Document Format.

The odt transformation begins with pre-processing. It then runs either the dita.odt.package.topic or target, depending on whether the input to the transformation is a DITA topic or a DITA map. The following description focuses on the map process, which is made up of the following targets:
Converts the map into a merged XML file using the Java-based topicmerge module. Then an XSLT process converts the merged file into the content.xml file.
Reads the input DITA map, and then uses XSLT to create a styles.xml file in the temporary directory.
Creates the manifest.xml file

Once these targets have run, the generated files are zipped up together with other required files to create the output ODT file.
