>>Well, I guess XML overcomes it by eliminating it. XML is used to
define strictly structural languages, whereas HTML is somewhat of
a hybrid between a structural and procedural markup. Thus, you
don't have to worry about wizzy editors with XML because there is
no need--you're only defining the structure, not the look. That's
where the styles will come in (CSS, XSL, DSSSL, whatever).
There's no need to really mark-up XML-based documents by hand.
So we agree. A wizzy XML editor doesn't make sense as a concept.
Personally I think an outliner makes the best XML editor. I'm wondering
what beyond simple structural editing is needed. Outliners do a great job
of editing structures, that's what they're for.
