Open Document Format (ODF)
The OpenDocument format (ODF) is a free and open file format for electronic office
documents, such as spreadsheets, charts, presentations and word processing documents.
The specification is based on the XML format originally created and implemented by the
OpenOffice.org office suite.
oXygen XML Editor is the first tool that offers support for editing,
transforming and validating documents composing the Open Document format (ODF)
package directly through the archive support.
The Archive Browser View
You can transform, validate, and perform many other operations on files inside an
archive. When selecting a URL for a specific operation (such as transformation or
validation) you can click the Browse for archive file button to
navigate and choose the file from a certain archive.
After an archive is opened in the Archive Browser files from it can be edited in
oXygen and then saved back to the archive. You have many useful options to modify
the archive structure or extract files from it.
Editing OpenDocument Format (ODF) Files
A complete framework is offered in oXygen providing powerful support for
editing and validating documents from the OpenDocument format (ODF) zipped
Validation is done using the latest Open Office ODF Relax NG schemas.
You can easily create new ODF documents using the document templates provided by
oXygen for Open Office Presentation, Spreadsheet and Text Document.
Comparing OpenDocument Format (ODF) Files
With the oXygen Directories Comparison tool you can compare and merge
OpenDocument format (ODF) files or other ZIP-based archives seamlessly. The archive
files are presented as directories allowing the usual comparison and merge operations
