XML editor open-source

Syntext has released its Serna Free XML editor as open-source software. The application is a WYSIWYG XML editor designed to help writers freely author XML documents and allows users to work with DITA, DocBook and other common XML formats. To help in reducing time from the authoring process, composite documents are rendered using XSLT and XSL-FO, in order to achieve a print-like sequence. Other features include full support for UNICODE, and a multilingual spell checking function based on Aspell library.

The application offers drag-and-drop editing that make it possible to change the order of any XML document portions in "ContentMap", "Editing Window", or between them. The multilingual support can handle approximately 30 different languages. All changes that users make within the XML editor are in-real time and instantly allow the users to see the alterations.

Serna free as open-source is compatible with both Windows and Mac platforms. The Enterprise edition is priced at $560, comes with support for large XML documents and integrates with publishing engines.
