Syntext Releases Serna XML Editor Offering New Possibilities for Collaborative Authoring

BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 3-- Syntext, Inc. ( www.syntext.com/ ) announces version 2.3 of its Serna WYSIWYG XML Editor. Serna is the world's first WYSIWYG XML editor incorporating on-the-fly XSL-driven technology that allows users to work with XML documents close to their "print appearance." Enterprise technical author groups can now greatly simplify and accelerate their collaborative work on the XML documents with the new Serna functionality: XInclude support, WebDAV support and redlining. With Serna's unmatched XInclude support, authors may easily re-use and flexibly assemble the content from several documents. The included XML documents are edited "in-place," as if they are parts of the main document. Moreover, authors may include only a part of a document without breaking it into fragments. The redlining functionality allows authors to annotate XML documents, and quickly find, accept or reject changes made by others. Serna's redlining is fully transparent to document schema and does not affect other tools and publishing systems. The WebDAV support brings the ability for distributed XML authoring and integration with modern content management systems. "Serna is becoming one of the most advanced XML authoring tools on the market, and certainly delivers more value for its price than any competing product," said Syntext CEO Paul Antonov. "The new set of Serna functionality greatly enhances the productivity of enterprise technical authors, and there is more. With Python and C++ APIs our customers rapidly extend, customize and integrate Serna with existing content management systems. Syntext also provides customization services for customers within short timeframes and at excellent prices." The key features of Syntext Serna include: out-of-the-box support of leading XML standards such as DocBook, DITA, TEI, XHTML, NITF; on-the-fly XSL rendering and XML Schema document validation, support for XML catalogs, redlining, XInclude, WebDAV, CALS table support, multilingual spell checking, C++ and scripting (Python) plugin APIs, and availability for Microsoft Windows(TM) (2000, XP), Mac OS X and Linux. Free fully functional trials are available for download at www.syntext.com/ . Syntext, Inc. is a private American company founded in Seattle, Washington in 1999.
