True Stylus Studio Stories: Why I Chose Stylus Studio

This month's True Stylus Studio Story comes from Dr. David J. Birnbaum, Associate Professor and Chairman of the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Pittsburgh. "I tried several XML editors to accomplish my work, and
settled on using Stylus recently when I heard about the new XML Differencing feature - it's the best tool for highlighting differences between closely related stylesheets and documents,
" said Dr. Birnbaum. "I'm also a big fan of Stylus Studio's integrated XPath search tools. Overall I am impressed with Stylus Studio's support for working with XML, XSLT, SVG and other key W3C standards."

You can learn more about how Dr. Birnbaum uses XML and Stylus Studio in his work and find out why thousands of XML developers like Dr. Birnbaum are choosing Stylus Studio as their preferred XML IDE at our website.
