Surely this is exactly what DTD's can do - 'organize the constructs of a language' - and with a DTD and something like Xeena from IBM I think it's possible now? (Xeena is an editor that uses a DTD to constrain the authors into only writing valid syntax: http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/xeena). > As far as "Visual Programming" environments go (especially for "non > programmers") I think it is invaluable to have the ability to step through > the code and see what is happening which implies an IDE rather than a simple > editor. > I agree - but to have a tool which ONLY LETS YOU WRITE VALID CODE IN THE FIRST PLACE will surely be a big leap up from trying to debug code you wrote in a standard editor and then try and find the typo's/missing separators/line-breaks/etc.?
