Not a development issue, I know, but I thought it would make a
pleasant change to be able to report something positive.
I've been playing with FrameMaker 5.5.6 this morning, which includes
a "Save as XML" function. The XML code it produces is well-formed and
appears to be 100% compliant (no parse errors in most tools).
FM outputs a CSS stylesheet (I suppose XSL would have been too much
to ask), but the code display in IE5 Beta PR2 is very good.
Of course, while FM creates perfect XML code for linked images:
<IMAGE xml:link="simple" href=" ... " show="embed" actuate="auto"/>
IE5 hasn't got a clue what to do with this.
Even cross-references are handled nicely, FrameMaker outputing code
of this form:
<A href="document2.xml#id(78222)" xml:link="simple"
show="replace" actuate="user" CLASS="XRef">
but again, IE5 doesn't have much of a clue what to do with this.
Tables are also, as you could have guessed, a mess.
Despite IE's deficiencies, FrameMaker 5.5.6 is definitely a giant
step forward in the right direction.
