Arbortext, Inc.announced the immediate availability of the 2.0 release of Epic, XML-based software that now supports two-way conversions between Microsoft Word and XML. With this feature and others, Epic now addresses three tiers of e-Content creators and authors within an organization, extending its capabilities across the enterprise. Epic’s round-trip conversion capability makes it possible for a wide range of users to create feature-rich XML content with Word. Organizations implementing XML-based systems are recognizing three tiers of users: power users, who need access to powerful XML creation and administration tools; occasional users, who need to work directly with XML and enterprise repositories; and Word users, who need to convert Word files to XML (and validate the content) and receive XML information in Word format.
