   Re: [xml-dev] XML Editors supporting change tracking (redliningetc.)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


Some XML editors provide a 'track changes' facility but I do not know 
of any that will compare two XML documents intelligently. But, if you 
need to use more than one type of editor, or combine automatic 
processing of your XML with hand-editing, you need to be able to 
compare XML.

DeltaXML [1] will compare two XML files for you and generate an XML 
delta file, showing either just the change or the changes and the 
unchanged data all in one file. There are a few others out there 
also, see [2]. DeltaXML is being used for redlining/blacklining XML 
documents [3], and there is an example of red/blacklining using XHTML
