Subject RE: XXE configuration for forrest
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2003 12:12:41 GMT
One could do the Morphon way, but the simplity that I would be looking
for users is to plainly have a WYSIWYG edit within in their browser.
Using the stylesheet definitions as 'options'. One step further could be
to add the the possibility of an XML "template" to act like a form, e.g.
a specific layout based on doc v12, or a form generated for FAQ
additions etc.  The latter could also be formatted based on a WYSIWYG
format, just with form entry blocks where information would be entered
to complete the XML. 

That combination could really be powerfull and usefull. Just one
question though - should that not become part of cocoon block rather? It
will in any case create the ability to create and edit any XML file.

At one stage we either had, or talked about having, a directory in
our cvs with config files for various tools. I remember that someone
had something for XMetaL.

Anyway, i am supportive of the idea as long as these files continue
to be maintained by some people at Forrest.
