Subject Re: XML Schema for Pivot's WTKX: not.
Date Tue, 04 May 2010 21:38:45 GMT
I had actually started down the path of writing an XSD generator myself a while back. I abandoned
it at the time due to time constraints, but I had started to wonder if DTD might be a better
way to go, since it would avoid the typing issues. Either way, I agree that "real" code completion
support would be a much better alternative.

new to IntelliJ plugin development, it will take some time.
