SiberLogic & Corel Offer XML Authoring Solution

SiberLogic and Corel announced a public evaluation of a browser based XML Authoring Environment. The solution combines Corel’s ActiveX XMetaL editor and SiberLogic’s Author Dashboard. It provides access to the SiberSafe XML Content Management System (CMS) without having to install any software on your machine. The environment allows authors, casual contributors and reviewers to participate in the XML based technical content production process without having to learn about XML technology. Both the SiberSafe CMS and XMetaL XML editor are accessed via the browser. There is a dockable toolbar for direct access to most often used tasks, such as create a new document, edit existing content, review to do list, etc. Power users have access to the desktop interface to manage document sets and reusable content. They can also configure workflow, grant object-level access permissions, define document templates, and manage publication and deployment of approved content. www.siberlogic.com
