You can control the amount of markup that is displayed in the Author mode with various levels of tag modes for both block and in-line elements.

The following dedicated tag modes are available from the Tags Display Mode drop-down menu (available on the toolbar):

Full Tags with Attributes
Displays full tag names with attributes for both block and inline elements.
Full Tags
Displays full tag names without attributes for both block and inline elements.
Block Tags
Displays full tag names for block elements and simple tags without names for inline elements.
Inline Tags
Displays full tag names for inline elements, while block elements are not displayed.
Partial Tags
Displays simple tags without names for inline elements, while block elements are not displayed.
No Tags
No tags are displayed. This is the most compact mode and is as close as possible to a word-processor view.
Configure Tags Display Mode
Opens the Author preferences page where you can configure options in regards to tags, such as the default Tags Display Mode, Tags Background Color, Tags Foreground Color, Tags Font, and whether or not Oxygen XML Editor will use a Compact Tag Layout for displaying the tags (this option tries to group consecutive block tags on the same line).
Note: The associated CSS information is used to determine whether a tag should be considered inline or block. If the current document does not have an associated CSS stylesheet, then the Full Tags mode will be used.
