This book is entirely devoted to semantic markup of taxonomic literature and its implementation for increased convenience in reading, archiving, future data mining and reuse. Several novelties are described in the two forum papers and demonstrated in four examplar papers.

An XML-based editorial, publication and dissemination workflow was developed and implemented, that permuits acceptance of manuscripts generated either from databases (Scratchpads websites and Proctotrupoidea website) or as standard MS Word files. The XML manuscripts generated "by pushing the button" from Scratchpads are linked to the online dynamic versions of the same after publication.
