Sorry for that. I think I finally found the switch.

For 70% (or whatever) it is implemented, but I certainly do respect the 
apache-cocoon community and won't argue anymore;-)

I suggest that we help Laurens and Lon from Q42 getting
their functional specification online, such that we have
a common basis.

Nevertheless, here are some topics I would like to discuss:

1) Context menu:
    You can find a scratch at:

    Actions on "elements" and "attributes": insert before, insert after, 
append, delete, move down, move up.
     What part of the XML Schema do you show?

2) How do you insert (link) multimedia objects

3) If you have a list of articles for instance (referenced by
    XInclude), how do you insert a new one.

4) How do you mix content with "deep" structure (not just a hypertext 
link)? An example would be you want to "highlight" a person or an 
organization within the text, but also want to bind more information to 
it. Do you use XLink and how do you get this XLink into the content?

All the best
