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/conditional
text, independent of XML vocabulary. It is easily and highly configurable, driven by CSS
- Customizable XML Editor
The Author mode of <oXygen/> XML
Editor demonstrates a new 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).
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 the 'expert' users, other for the
'novice' users manual while unmarked sections are included in any
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.
