Visual (WYSIWYG) XML Editors

oXygen offers CSS-based out-of-the-box visual editing support for a number of important XML documentation frameworks (DITA, DocBook, TEI, XHTML). Also, in case you are planning to use other types of XML documents, an API is available for customizing oXygen.
  • Generic Visual XML Editor
    oXygen allows you to visually edit any XML document. By default, oXygen includes out-of-the-box capabilities for content review, change tracking, profiling, and conditional text, all of which are independent from XML vocabulary. Driven by CSS stylesheets, oXygen is simple to use and highly customizable.

  • DITA Editor
    oXygen offers the most advanced DITA editing support, covering both DITA 1.1 and 1.2 standards, and allows users with limited knowledge of XML to edit DITA documents in a visual interface (similar to a WYSIWYG word processor). The DITA Open Toolkit publishing engine comes bundled with the application.

    oXygen XML Editor includes TEI DTDs and stylesheets. Writing and publishing TEI documents is very easy with oXygen since its user interface is similar to a word processing application (WYSIWYG).

  • Visual XHTML Editor
    XHTML (Extensible Hyper Text Markup Language) is a more strict and clean version of HTML, written as XML. oXygen XML Editor includes schemas, catalogs, and templates for XHTML. You can create documents conforming to either transitional or strict XHTML DTDs. Along with editing in Text mode, oXygen also offers a user interface similar to a classic word processing application (WYSIWYG) tuned for XHTML editing.

  • oXygen WebHelp for DITA and DocBook
    oXygen offers support for transforming DITA and DocBook resources into WebHelp output. WebHelp consists of a series of HTML pages, neatly integrated into a system that offers table of contents, index navigation, text search capabilities, and various delivery formats (including a feedback-enabled one).

    A WebHelp system is the result of a transformation scenario usually run in oXygen XML Editor, oXygen XML Author, or oXygen XML Developer. However, if you require an automated process that produces the WebHelp output, the same result can be obtained by running the transformation inside oXygen XML WebHelp Plugin, which is a command-line interface application that requires its own license key.

    The Plugin does not offer a trial license. If you want to test the WebHelp output, you can do so by running a DITA or DocBook to WebHelp transformation scenarios from within oXygen XML Editor. If you do not have an oXygen XML Editor license key, you can request a 30-day trial.

" oXygen XML Editor is the premier text editor for XML geeks, and an indispensable tool for O'Reilly's Production group. My team uses oXygen XML Editor for everything from simple XML editing to Schema validation and XSLT transformations. The digital production staff especially loves oXygen's built-in EPUB support, which eliminates a great deal of the grunt work that is usually entailed in editing EPUB files. The more we use oXygen, the more realize what a powerful tool it can be in digital and XML-based workflows."
