Use these cards to plan your DITA implementation and create your DITA information model. Each card contains best practice guidelines to help you choose which elements you need, and the content models to help you further define the element structure most appropriate to your content.
Use your sorted and annotated cards as a specification for any necessary constraints development, as well as a quick reference to your information model.
