Editing XML Documents

The structure of an XML document and the required restrictions on its elements and their attributes are defined with an XML schema. This makes it easier to edit XML documents in the visual Author editing mode. For more information about schema association, see Associating a Schema to XML Documents.

Oxygen XML Author includes fully supported built-in frameworks for the most popular XML document types (DITA, DocBook, TEI, XHTML, JATS) with a full set of features. These built-in frameworks are defined according to a set of rules and a variety of settings that improve editing capabilities for its particular file type. For extensive details about the DITA editing features included in Oxygen XML Author, see the DITA Authoring chapter.
