I don't know what I don't know, y'know?

This forum post (Polish, auto-translated into google) mentions the layout video I did for Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple. I do videos like this to share what I know with others, but also to be transparent about what I do not know.

For example, the poster says "he committed many mistakes, how to manually assign attributes to the font and text passages..." This is what I mean. ;)

I know a lot about typography, design and layout, but I don't know what I don't know about InDesign. I hear terms like "grep" and "latex" tossed around. I know they could probably make some aspects of my process easier, but so far I've worked well enough without knowing them.

I must seem like an old man on Google who still clicks the 'submit' button instead of hitting 'enter.' I have much to learn about the technical side of layout. That's something I'll be working on in the future. Meanwhile, get those kids off my lawn, dagnabbit! :P

If you have any resources, tutorials or next steps I should look at, I'm happy to check them out! I also want to give a shout out to Mark Sherry, for helping set up some crazy XML stuff for me in the past. Thanks, Mark!
