The XML Spy 4.1 XSLT Designer is an innovative new approach to automate
writing of complex XSLT Stylesheets using an intuitive, drag-and-drop user
interface. It also enables the customization of the XML Spy 4.1 Document
Editor by defining an XSLT Stylesheet and additional editing-specific
options based upon the underlying DTD or XML Schema for use during the
content creation or editing process.

The XML Spy 4.1 Document Editor is the easiest word-processor style
free-flow WYSISYG text editor for XML documents, empowering non-technical
people to create and edit XML documents. It supports form-based data input,
graphical elements, presentation and editing of arbitrary repeating XML
elements as tables, real-time validation, and consistency checking using XML
Schema. The Document Editor is available as a stand-alone application,
integrated as a separate view within the XML Spy IDE user-interface (if you
purchase the XML Spy Suite product), and as a Browser Plug-In for Internet
Explorer, which allows for XML content creation anywhere on the Internet!

The XML Spy 4.1 Document Framework consists of the XML Spy 4.1 XSLT Designer
and the XML Spy 4.1 Document Editor, which together form an XSLT & XML
Schema based, enterprise-wide content management solution for creating and
deploying large volumes of XML content in real-world production environments
such as web-publishing, knowledge management or e-commerce.  A live
demonstration of the XML Spy 4.1 Document Framework in action is hosted at
www.nanonull.com (requires Internet Explorer 5.5 or 6.0).  The demo consists
of several rich electronic forms based on advanced schema and XSLT, which
were written using the XSLT designer, and are displayed and edited on your
browser using the automatically installed Document Editor browser plug-in.

The XML Spy 4.1 Suite
The XML Spy 4.1 IDE and XML Spy 4.1 Document Framework together comprise the
XML Spy 4.1 Suite, the most comprehensive tool Suite for Advanced XML
Application Development (AXAD)!

learning XML with XML Spy 4.1. XMLSpyBootCamp! - EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION

Developed by the Richard Hale Shaw Group (www.RichardHaleShawGroup.com --

is a 4-day, hands-on intense immersion in learning XML using XML Spy 4.1.
Starting with XML fundamentals and mark-up, and moving quickly to
style-sheets (XSL and XSLT using the XSLT Designer in XML Spy) and
validation (DTD's and Schemas, plus the XML Spy Schema Editor and IE
plug-in), the course covers both the DOM and the SAX parser, as well as
server-side XML and SOAP. Taught in a rigorous, hands-on fashion by
professionals such as Josh Holmes (who wrote the XML Spy BootCamp course and

to utilize the latest features of XML Spy 4.1 for building a variety of

late October, 2001, and is available as on-site training as well. For
