   Have you considered using SGML instead of XML. There are browser plug-ins
you can use to view it natively, and it's a much more suitable
authoring/editing format. There are also plenty of tools for management,
distribution, etc.

We are looking very hard for a single-source solution to our
multiple-format output requirements. Buzz language aside, I mean that
we want to maintain one source using Adobe FrameMaker (a DTP tool)
lets us see the files as though they were print
documents and lets our users see the same files (not other files
derived from our source files but THE VERY SAME FILES) using a Web
browser (which will do double-duty as a help engine), keeping all
links, cross-references and graphics intact and functioning. For this
we need to be able to edit XML files directly using the "printed page"
Is this a pipe-dream? Pie in the sky? Am I crazy for expecting to be
able to do this in 1999?
