Subject Re: Dummy proof XML on-line editing
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2001 15:21:31 GMT
What you describe is axactly what I want to build:
A dynamic web form that lets the user pick the tags available to him at the 
the point he is at at that moment.  He is also presented with the 
optional/required attirbutes.  This lets the user create/edit an XML file 
without the hasle of the XML document tree and parsing/validating.  That's 
way to difficult for an average user who barely knows hos to switch on his 
comp ;-)

Do you mean you wish to help develop such a framework?
