Will Oxygen replace Arbortext for 40051 TM development

Note: My question comes from my uninformed management perspective.

We've historically developed many technical manuals but in this case we need to develop a small TM IAW US MIL-STD 400051 in XML format utilizing prescribed DTDs and FOSI. This is a small, quick reaction effort so I have no interest in taking on Arbortext. Is there a workable Oxygen solution??

Thanks for indulging the general question.

Hi,

Oxygen does not have out of the box support for this standard. Being a generic XML editing tool, if you provide Oxygen with a DTD to use for validation and content completion and a CSS for editing the XML in the Author visual editing mode, then Oxygen will have some support for your vocabulary:

But you would need to invest some time in customizing Oxygen to work with your XML vocabulary.
