Generic Visual XML Editor
With oXygen you can visually edit any XML document. By default,
oXygen offers out-of-the-box support for content review, change tracking, profiling,
and conditional text, all of which are independent of XML vocabulary. It is easily and
highly configurable, driven by CSS stylesheets.
- Customizable XML Editor
The Author mode of
oXygen XML Editor demonstrates a productive way of authoring XML documents,
similar to a word processor. oXygen can be easily customized to visually edit any
XML vocabulary (driven by CSS stylesheets).
User-Friendly XML Visual Editing
oXygen makes XML document authoring easier than editing with an
unstructured word processing application. oXygen proposes only the valid structure
at a given point in a document: there is no need to encode semantics into arbitrary
styling. The guided XML authoring leads to shorter content editing time.
Out-of-the-box Table Support
oXygen offers built-in support for both CALS and HTML table
models. If your XML vocabulary adheres to one of those models,
oXygen will automatically detect the table elements and layout the content in a
tabular fashion. If your XML vocabulary uses other table standard you can use the
standard W3C CSS table styling properties in the associated stylesheet.
- Change Tracking and Review
is a way to keep a history of the changes made to a document. When change tracking is
enabled, the inserted and deleted content is highlighted in the document allowing you
to easily identify the affected regions. Tracked changes can be rendered in callouts
(balloons) displayed at the side of the document, with connecting lines pointing to
the changed content.
Conditional text is a way to
mark blocks of text meant to appear in some renditions of the document but not in
others. For instance, you can mark a section of a document to be included in the
manual designated for 'expert' users and another section for 'novice' users, while
unmarked sections are included in any rendition.
- Validate As-you-type
Keeping the content
valid at all times is a top priority. As a result oXygen will
reject actions that will make the document invalid and propose solutions to keep the
document valid. Document checking is performed automatically each
time the document changes.
