Re: XML-appropriate editing data structures

biztalk 2004 xml to csv
Thanks Mark. I first created it out of a need for simple XML editing. The
other, visual editors were so convoluted (and slow) that I got so
frustrated, I wrote this one. I'll be the first to admit that xmlHack has
some rought edges, but it's usefullness is far greater. And yes, it is a
Win32 app. I've never much liked java GUI application... <duck>

I agreed with what Michael Kay said earlier, UltraEdit was the editor of
choice for me for a long while. It was just lacking a few XML-based
features, like syntax highlighting, etc. And honestly, that's all I ever
want in an XML editor, just a powerful text editor with some optional
XML-based features.
