6.2 Conceptual Model
The DSSSL conceptual model has two distinct processes: (1) a transformation process and (2) a formatting process. The two processes may be used in conjunction with each other, or each may be used alone.
An illustration of the DSSSL conceptual model is shown in Figure 1, DSSSL Conceptual Model.
The shaded areas indicate the parts of the processing model that are standardized by DSSSL.
