PSGML 1.2.0 Beta with XML Editing Support
Date: Wed, 13 Oct 1999 08:21:41 -0400 (EDT) From: David Megginson <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: XMLDev list <email@example.com> Subject: About PSGML 1.2.0 (Open-Source XML editor)
In case people haven't noticed, on Sunday a beta PSGML 1.2.0 appeared on Lennart's site (previous versions with XML support had been alpha):
PSGML provides fully DTD-driven XML and SGML editing support for Gnu Emacs and its XEmacs cousin, and it's <taunt>100% Python-free</taunt>.
On a similar note, there's now an XEmacs binary kit for people disadvantaged with the Windows operating system:
XEmacs is a much prettier, GUI-ish branch of Gnu Emacs -- this distribution probably comes with an earlier PSGML version bundled, but I haven't checked.
<plug> XEmacs+PSGML is my editor of choice for all of my XML and SGML work. I've used it to create probably close to 10,000 printed pages of documentation over the last few years, and have used XEmacs's regular-expression facilities for adding complex markup to e-texts. It's probably not suitable for naive users (give 'em XMetaL or WordPerfect, or maybe XED), but for the tech-savvy, it's great. </plug>
<disclaimer> Of course, I also use XEmacs as my mail and news reader, so I'm probably not sane. </disclaimer>
All the best,
