Real Quality XML Tools on a Budget

"Teachers and students have traditionally encountered limited options when shopping for robust entry-level XML IDEs — tools for new users exploring XML and related technologies that let you do real work, too. There are entry-level tools on the market, but a choice between incomplete and unusable product offerings is really no choice at all. Most so-called 'free' tools provide limited functionality — and I’m even aware of one that has a 24-hour time bomb! One day to evaluate a tool? Stylus Studio 6 Home Edition addresses the needs of the academic and non-commercial user community by providing a robust, high-quality, standards-aware XML IDE for a budget-conscious price — just $99 for a complete XML IDE with no costly add-ons. Stylus Studio 6 Home Edition is the clear alternative," said Ivan Pedruzzi, Stylus Studio's Senior Product Architect.
