Parsers are the front line for any program that works with XML. After that, the code lines split and only the unix software was compiled with the Visix environment.

A few years ago, there was a project in the W3C, led by James Clark, to develop a high-quality style description language. Some of these text editors support an XML “mode” which can highlight markup and assist in inserting tags. It’s both a browser and an editor with built-in XML parsing and validating. This high-quality formatting is difficult to achieve, however, and you will spend a lot of time tweaking difficult stylesheets to get just the appearance you’re looking for. When choosing an editor, you’ll have to weigh the benefits of enforced structure against the interruptions in the creative process.

You should be able to create macros to automate frequent editing steps and map keys on the keyboard to these macros.

It will allow you to create and position graphics, write XSLT stylesheets, create electronic forms, create tables in a special table builder, and create XML Schema. I know several of the Visix engineers who remember this cool company named Arbortext that was doing interesting stuff with their software.

LibXML module to create a handy command-line validation tool. The tool helpfully points out all the places where it thinks the XML is broken and needs to be fixed, along with a short message indicating what’s wrong.

Besides using a programming library or command-line tool, you could also use a web browser for its built-in XSLT transformer.

How much of the CSS standard is implemented, however, varies considerably across browsers. It will point out well-formedness errors for you though often just one at a time and can also validate against a DTD. Simply add a line like this to the XML document to tell the browser to transform it: Which editor you use will depend a lot on your budget.

Extracting data from deep inside a document is a common task for developers. In an environment where data comes from many sources, such as multiple authors in collaboration, or records from databases, an editor that can communicate with a database can be a big deal. Instead of passing on digested XML to another program, standalone parsers, also called well-formedness checkers, tell you when markup is good or bad, and usually give you hints about what went wrong.


They can update documents in many places when data sources have changed, and they can branch document source text into multiple simultaneous versions.

Every program that works with XML first has to parse it. However, you could use an XML Schema. This has led to wacky situations such as the Mac version being for a time more advanced than its Windows cousin. All XML editors will warn you when there are structural errors or improper element placement validity errors. Viewing a document in IE looks like Figure Where can you get a tool like this? As ofour LinkedIn group has over members.

To do this, I need to place a line in the XML document that looks like this: Standard support varies with platform, the Windows version being strongest.

The Windows software was re-written as a native windows client. LibXML is an interface to a C library called libxml2, where the real parsing work is done. Others include Apache’s Xalan http: Like a stylesheet, the DTD tells the editor how to handle elements and whether they are allowed in various contexts.
