single authoring

From Glossary of Terms for Device Independence (2005-01-18) | Glossary for this source

An authoring style in which a single variant of each resource is created and is automatically adapted to produce the user experience for each delivery context. .
Single authoring represents one end of a spectrum of authoring styles that include multiple authoring and flexible authoring. It represents a theoretical extreme that is rarely achieved in practice. Though, theoretically, it offers the minimum development cost, limitations in practical adaptation systems mean that compromises are necessary in the final user experiences. These compromises are often considered unacceptable.
