Arbortext, Inc., demonstrated a “free-form” XML editing capability that will be available in upcoming releases of Epic and ADEPT products. Content management systems that allow free-form editing enable an author to create and refine XML documents without a corresponding DTD.. Arbortext’s support for free-form editing means Epic and ADEPT users can edit well-formed XML documents as easily as they edit valid XML documents today. The amount of content available in XML is rapidly expanding and users of proprietary tools will be virtually “locked out” of the XML wave because of the huge cost of conversion. With Arbortext’s free-form XML editing capability, no conversion is necessary — authors can instantly read, modify and write well-formed XML data from any source, or incorporate that data into a valid XML document.
