   Re: [xml-dev] XML-appropriate editing data structures

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I am enjoying this session on editing data structures.  
The thing that has impressed me the most in the past few 
weeks about xml is that finding a suitable authoring tool
is pretty much  it must fit thing.  The correct tool
for a particular type of job is important to success.

Is that true or have I not yet found a good universal xml
authoring tool?
