jedit xsd
Im a big fan of both jEdit (open source, so its free, and its got a very
good and active dev community... http://www.jedit.org ) as well as
Eclipse (IBM's open source editor, http://www.eclipse.org ) with the
XMLBuddy Pro add in ($35, http://www.xmlbuddy.com ).  XMLBuddy Pro, from
what I remember, has pretty decent Schema/XSLT integration with some
pretty cool features.

However, both need to be configured to take advantage of all they have
to offer.  It really depends on your skill level and understanding of
how editors of this nature are set up as to whether or not these
solutions will work for you.  If you are a newbie to both XSLT and
coding in general then these probably are not the answer.  But I am
confident there are plenty of other list members who can stear you down
the editor road with ease but you may need to be patient while you get
the responses, as this list is truly global and as such will take a good
24 hours a to get a good set of data to run with.

Best of luck!

Subject:  XSLT Editor? Help Please (from a newbie)

Hey everyone,

- I'm a newbie to XSLT ...and am trying to learn. Can you help?

  *** What do you use as an editor for your XSLT documents. ***

- I'm trying to find a software tool...where a user can generate a
prelimnary, generic XSLT file based on
the format of an XSD file (or XML file)...that's fairly cheap in price.

- I recently bought XMLSpy Home Edition...and was impressed by its
to help a user create an
XML Schema (XSD) file, and the XML file itself....but was sorely
dissappointed when it came to
creating an XSLT output file.  The answer from the helpdesk was that
of XMLSpy Home must
manually code their XSLT documents - and that there's more available in
Version (The jump to XMLSpy Professional is about $450).

- XMLSpy also has Stylevision that will help form (or map) XSLT
documents...but the  purchase price is just under $400.

However, not wanting to go with a $400 jump ....I've been looking

- I've looked at:
	-- XSLMaker ($349),
	-- Contivo ($199),
	-- EZxslt ($129),
	-- Stylus Studio ($395),
	-- Saxon (Unk price for professional version),
	-- Treebeard,
	-- Cocoon,
	-- Komodo and Visual XSLT have cheaper end, educational
	...and others.

- I've tried GNU, Oreilly XML, Surgeforge.net...

- The best tool I've found is Notetab (see www.notetab.com) , with the
XSLT clip library...but it
is still a highly, manual process..

- Do you have any recommendations? ...on good, cheaper-end software

Thanks ahead of time,
