I'm working on a documentation project which involves thousands of pages. Instead writing it on HTML I'd rather do it in XML and the generate HTML/PDF output.
So the goal is to edit a huge documentation project in XML and get an HTML website or PDF documents.
Is Stylus Studio suitable for this purpose ?
Can it handle projects with thousands of XML related files ?
We need basic editing capabilities (normal text/bullets/numbering/bold/italic etc), links, images. Also if pages are moved in the project is there any chance to update the links ?
Can SS be used by non-XML experts ?
Does it support templates, contents generation ?

SS is a great tool but you may need more understanding of the task at hand. What you want to do (restating for clarity) is write XML documents and then generate HTML/PDF files...SS can definetely help you. Your process will be to write the XML documents (SS has an XML, XSL (and a WYSIWYG XSL) editors built in plus the capabilities to do post XSLT processing (XSL-FO for you PDFs) but you will have to do some setting up to accomplish that. I have not done any XSL-FO processing with SS but I'm sure their staff will be more than willing to help you out. I believe they have a tutorial or webinar archived on the site. Check it out.
