Re: [xml-dev] XML tools

Hi Jonathan,

XMetaL is now owned by JustSystems, and they are still working on it. Last 
I looked at www.xmetal.com, version 5.0 was still in Beta, to be released 
sometime this month.  We use version 4.6 here and find that it is good for 
editing WYSIWYG documents, and the feature set has improved greatly since

For data integration, XQuery support, defining pipelines, writing 
schemas, or debugging XSLT stylesheets, I really like Stylus Studio. I 
do work for the company that produces this, fair disclosure, but I 
really think this is the best XML tool for programmers working with XML.

For writing documents, I agree with the people who like <oXygen/>, which 
I frequently use for writing articles and specifications.

If you need a WYSIWYG editing environment, I still like my old copy of 
XMeTaL, though I have no idea who owns it at this point or whether 
anybody is doing new work on it. <oXygen/> does not give me that nice 
WYSIWYG feature. Anyone know what's up wiht XMeTaL these days? Are there 
any new editors that do the same job better?

I have not used the Serna product someone mentioned. I'm downloading it 
now ...
