Oxygen XML Editor
Description From Manufacturer
oXygen XML Author offers the most advanced DITA editing support covering both DITA 1.1 and 1.2 standards and allows even users with less knowledge of XML to edit DITA documents in a visual interface similar to a word processor. The DITA Open Toolkit publishing engine (usually the latest) is bundled with the application. oXygen offers intelligent DITA editing assisting the user with content completion, DITA specific actions, validation and a number of predefined transformation scenarios to immediately publish DITA to PDF, WebHelp, EPUB and other DITA output formats. New DITA documents can be easily created using predefined and user defined document templates. The predefined templates cover all the DITA standard information types including topics, tasks, concepts, composites, references, maps and learning content. Visual table builder, in-place expansion of content references, link navigation and conditional processing are just a few of the DITA specific features provided by oXygen. oXygen is specialization aware and once a DITA specialization is integrated in the bundled DITA-OT it will just work in oXygen for editing, validation and publishing.
The oXygen XML Editor contains in addition to oXygen XML Author all the XML development related functionality. Here there are a few features available only in oXygen XML Editor that are useful for DITA:
- Specialized schema editors for creating DTDs and schemas; these may help if you create a DITA specialization for example
- XSLT editor and debugger which is useful if you customize the XSLT stylesheets from DITA OT or if you develop additional DITA-OT plugins or other DITA transformations
