Document Types (Frameworks)

Presents the built-in support for various document types.

A document type or framework is associated to an XML file according to a set of rules. It also includes a variety of settings that improve editing capabilities in the Author mode for its particular file type. These settings include:
  • A default grammar used for validation and content completion in both Author mode and Text mode.
  • CSS stylesheets for rendering XML documents in Author mode.
  • User actions invoked from toolbars or menus in Author mode.
  • Predefined scenarios used for transformations for the class of XML documents defined by the document type.
  • XML catalogs.
  • Directories with file templates.
  • User-defined extensions for customizing the interaction with the content author in Author mode.

Oxygen XML Editor includes built-in support for many common document types. Each document type is defined in a framework. You can create new frameworks or make changes to existing frameworks to suit your individual requirements.
