Subject: WYSIWYG XML editor via JS/ActiveX

> Hello all,
> some time ago, I started working on an semantical oriented, yet WYSIWYG
> XML editor for IE 5.5+, after being unsatisfied with some aspects of
> Xopus. It is not yet finished and lacks some aspects (content changes
> work, structural changes don't), but the basic components are there. I
> think this editor can be extended to support both IE and Mozilla; I am
> willing to donate it to the ASF.
> For the interested who have a WebDAV-enabled directory available
> somewhere (e.g. most Tomcat users should have a webdav/ webapp
> available), grab yourself the contents of this zip archive and extract
> it into a directory called editor/ below the webdav/ directory. Then
> visit Microsoft at

> and download the "CAB file for Redistribution"; it contains an
> executable which in turn contains the necessary; put this cab
> file into the editor/ directory, too, as it allows the ActiveX
> components for needed client-side XML and XSLT functionality to be
> offered for installation when needed.
> When going to http://<yourserver>:<yourport>/webdav/editor/test.html,

> Drag'n'Drop and Cut'n'Paste work as they should; Right-mouse click shows

> Have fun, fire at will ;)
