Majix 1.0: the new freeware in the world of marked languages.
TetraSix is now releasing Majix 1.0, a freeware you may access by visiting the Cie's site at http://www.tetrasix.com.
Majix 1.0 is the very first converter entirely written in Java which produces XML from RTF. Thanks to Majix 1.0, the conversion of RTF files into XML is easily done.
This tool is deemed to be found essential by those concerned with the development of the Intranet, and those who run XML applications, as it allows users to populate a Word database without having first to create XML files.
This is how TetraSix caracterizes MAJIX 1.0
First of all, Majix 1.0 is pleasantly easy to use: the matching process between predefined Word styles and XML data items is very easy to do.
With Majix 1.0, every tag matching is managed by the user. Whatever the tag set (for instance, those tags used in any XML application and sector based DTD), it can be used when producing XML files. With this management fonction, users can start their own application from a common source
Majix 1.0 does not have fixed style sheets: you are free to add your own and to decide on your personal matching between different tag sets
Majix 1.0 is able to recognize pictures (whether included in a Word document or attached to it) and to place the appropriate tags. Majix 1.0 thus not only converts, but enriches complicated documents
MS Word tables are analysed and translated files contain the correct XML tags for these charts
Majix 1.0, because it is written according to XML grammar rules, guarantees your documents will be translated into well-formed XML files
Majix 1.0 can not only be used with msxsl (by Microsoft) to generate XML, but also with nsgmls (designed by James Clark) to validate the generated XML files. Majix 1.0 includes utilities which split XML documents into different size fragments which are adapted to any kind of publication on the World Wide Web
Majix 1.0 offers on-line help, which any browser of your choice will display.
Majix 1.0 is available at the following address: http://www.tetrasix.com.
