The simple and elegant look of the oXygen XML Editor combined with the complete coverage of the XML editing features have made it popular in both the corporate and academic worlds. It provides the necessary tools for the document creation and presentation.

The documents can be created and validated against any user defined schema. The smart context sensitive editing saves time and guarantees a minimum number of validation errors.

The documents can be published in a wide range of formats including HTML, PDF, PostScript using the built-in or external processors.

Developers can use oXygen for authoring document schemas and for editing and debugging the XSL stylesheets needed for the presentation layer. The integration with the document repositories is made through the WebDAV and FTP protocols.
