CSS :before and :after presentation in Author view

When tags are displayed in the Author view of version 22.0 any display text that is added (for presentation) using CSS :before and :after is now appearing inside the tags in question rather than before and after the tags (unlike in at least some previous versions). E.g. previously <example>first ite...

Open multiple results of transformation

I have an XLST transformation that uses two xsl:result-document elements to produce two result documents. When I create a transformation scenario, is it possible to set it up so that both result documents are opened in the editor when the transformation ends?

Also, sometimes the present behaviour makes no sense, i.e. when there are no attributes defined as available in the schema. For ...

Author mode: empty elements

When in author mode, it would be nice if (maybe optionally, so as not to annoy those who like things as they are), when an element is inserted that the schema requires to be empty, the cursor is positioned after the inserted element rather than inside it.

Would it be possible to develop a preference setting for whether, when opening a second file, it appears in a stacked or tiled window?

Re: Author mode: cut (and paste) XML

Thank you!! That works perfectly, although I had to set up a document type to use it because I couldn't see a built-in generic XML document type (but I may have overlooked one). (I haven't made any use of document types before, as all my schema & stylesheets are declared in my XML documents.)

Sure, elements marked as space preserve should not be modified if you edit the document outside those elements.
