XMetaL has a version of James Clark's XT wrapped in a DLL that can be used. In version 2 of this product you have to find it in the support directory to install it where previous versions it was a little more noticable to install it. Yes their default is to use MS, but this approach shows a method for incorporating any XSLT processor that you wanted to use: 1) Wrap the parser in a DLL if it doesn't have one. 2) Write the macro script that links the parser into the XMetaL environment. ..dan > > Lee > > -----Original Message----- > From: Rob Lugt [mailto:roblugt@e...] > Sent: 22 November 2000 10:52 > To: xml-dev@l... > Subject: XML Editor recommendation? > > > Dear all, > > We have a client which is a small group of journalists wishing > to create XML > content.
