Title: RE: [xml-dev] xml editors

One such product is XML Spy Authentic that allows you to develop forms for editing XML docs.  Licences for this product are free, though you do need XML Spy to develop the document framework, which is not free.

Subject: [xml-dev] xml editors

since there's been a bit of discussion on editors lately, i'd like to ask my own question.

in one of our application areas the users use spreadsheets for managing catalogs.... not the best for lots of reasons. the constant embedding of images being just one of them.

what i'd like is an xml editor that uses a stylesheet(?) or xslt to provide wysiwyg editing so that the users can add another record and then click in the different boxes (it will still be laid out as tables) to enter text. they will also want to attach/embed images in some boxes.

then various development people will be accessing and editing the document. the ability to publish the documents on an intranet is one the primary motivations for using xml.

there is also the advantage of using different xslt to get other functions from the files.

ps for programming xml i still use vi. works fine for my purposes, although i have noticed some colleagues would benefit from dtd or schema sensitive editors.
