[off-topic] Looking for a good xml-editor

 [1/5] from: Christophe::Coussement::mil::be at: 22-Jul-2003 14:11

Hi List: Please pardon me for this not-directly-related-with-REBOL topic. I'm now using our fav language to generate huge XML Data files, in the domain of Psychotechnical Assessment. As I'm working with CREdit as editor, which has limited xml-capabilities, I'm looking for a good XML-editor which can simplify my edition and documentation work ... I've heard of XMLSpy (from, which I'm testing now. But does anybody knows some other good editors ? thx a lot! ==xtof

I say bad things about xmlspy, in the same market as xmlspy is xmetal. The newer version xmetal 4, which I have not tried yet, seems to have some good things going for it, the older version (xmetal 3) however I would have a difficulty recommending as it always had problems handling stuff that did not have a doctype or schema associated with it. The older version seemed geared towards providing xml editing to document specialists, xmlspy seems geared to providing it to programmers who need to work with various xml formats, however I find that if one is working with a format one knows in either the older version of xmetal or in xmlspy one soon gets disgusted with the editors and decide to move onto another editor, either a simple text editor such as EditPlus which I often use or the following: I would recommend absolutely, however it presumes some expertise with xml.

Thanks a lot, Bryan! I will look for this ... For those interested, I noticed those two interesting links: a review from PC Mag:,4149,65860,00.asp a review of free XML tools: ==xtof

Hi Christophe, CC> I'm looking for a good XML-editor which can simplify my edition and CC> documentation work ... Have you looked at XMLMind? I've only tinkered with it, but it seems good to me (I haven't done major comparisons with others though). -- Gregg

Thanks for the hint, Gregg! Found @: I'll test it ;-) ==xtof
