Default Templates in DBT

The following is a summary of the Templates which are currently supplied with DBT.

It should be noted that all the XML (Daisy-NISO) styles are now incorporated into the Basic templates. So almost any template can be used to work with Daisy-NISO files. We retain the template English (American) - XML (Daisy-NISO-NIMAS) only to give updating users something familiar. The templates that cannot be used for this type of import are the two BANA templates.

NOTE: Where a Template is shown as "basic", it will usually follow the description given for English (American) - Standard Literary Format described below, but with the appropriate language applied.
