Sun Microsystems Selects XyEnterprise Production Publisher for XML Publishing

READING, MA, February 7, 2000, XyEnterprise, a leading developer of content
management and publishing software, announced that Sun Microsystems, Inc.
(NASDAQ: SUNW), Palo Alto, California, has selected XyEnterprise Production
Publisher (XPP) to automate the publishing of its SGML and XML content.
XPP is a sophisticated composition system that offers high-speed automated
throughput of SGML and XML data into formatted pages. Sun's primary initial
use of XPP is to publish user documentation for its Solaris Operating
Environment software in English, Japanese, and a variety of other languages
as needed.

"We selected XPP because of its speed, versatility, and automated support
for XML," said Todd Freter, a program manager in Sun's Software Products
and Platforms division. "We needed a strong, proven, powerful formatting
engine to accommodate the demands that our page design makes on the process.
This project is significant because it allows us to provide Sun personnel
with state-of-the-art formatting technology as well as support for our
XML publishing initiatives."

Sun's implementation of XPP will serve the company's documentation groups
across the United States as well as its European and Asian Language content
production centers. XPP will enable Sun to rapidly produce Postscript
and PDF output from SGML and XML data inputs. XPP styles will describe
the look and feel of these deliverables. The software will be accessed
over a network of computers running the Solaris Operating Environment

Freter added, "XPP will greatly ease the administration and maintenance
of multiple stylesheets for multiple language output for Sun. XPP also
handles character kerning and other functions quite well, which leads
to a better looking product. In addition, XPP provides an unbeatable rate
of throughput as well as reliable, high-quality output for our printed

"We are extremely pleased that Sun Microsystems has chosen XPP to automate
the publishing of its XML data," said Richard Pasewark, Vice President
of Sales and Marketing, Xyvision Enterprise Solutions. "XPP is an ideal
fit for XML and SGML based applications that require high-speed publishing
capabilities to produce high-volume, complex content in a variety of formats
and media."
