For Immediate Release

Corel(r) XMetaL(r) 4 Now Available

The Corel XMetaL 4 Platform Extends the Reach of XML Authoring to the
Web and Delivers on the Promise of Content Reuse

Ottawa, Canada - February 10, 2003 - Corel Corporation (NASDAQ: CORL,
TSX: COR) today announced the availability of Corel(r) XMetaL(r) 4.
Focusing on the specific needs of both developers and end users, Corel
XMetaL 4 is a new platform that extends XML content editing to virtually
any Windows application, including email and Web browsers.

The Corel XMetaL 4 platform provides the only richly-customizable XML
editing solutions that support dynamic validation for both DTDs and W3C
Schemas. It is composed of four separate applications designed to meet
the unique requirements of IT managers, developers, and end users. 

Corel XMetaL offers tight integration with leading content management
systems and provides the ideal environment for enterprise-wide XML
content creation. Maximizing content reuse, Corel XMetaL enables authors
to create compound documents of valid XML data - forming documents from
reusable sections or 'chunks' that can be managed individually,
dramatically improving the way organizations create and reuse their XML

"Corel XMetaL is known for its ability to make XML content creation
easy. But creating the XML is only the first step - how you use it is
even more vital. The ability to reuse and re-purpose content must be as
widespread as possible," said Bruce Sharpe, executive vice president of
XML content solutions for Corel. "Designed specifically for XML, Corel
XMetaL 4 provides an optimal environment to create and edit XML content
while ensuring that it can be easily shared and reused. With the
addition of ActiveX support, we are bringing the promise of valid XML
content to virtually any application."

"XML adoption grows steadily as organizations update their workflow to
support multi-channel delivery of content to the Web, print, and mobile
devices. The ability to easily create reusable content is essential,"
said Michael Maziarka, Director at CAP Ventures, a leading analyst firm
specializing in business communication technologies. "Corel XMetaL 4
takes great strides in helping to remove the barriers to XML adoption by
delivering an easy to maintain and configurable environment for IT
managers and end users alike."

The Corel XMetaL 4 Platform is Composed of Four Components:

Corel(r) XMetaL(r) Author is a customizable XML editing environment that
makes it easy to create valid and well-formed XML documents. XMetaL
Author includes the comprehensive writing tools featured in Corel
Ventura(r) and WordPerfect(r) Office as well as support for DTDs and
Schema, all in an environment that provides the same ease of use as a
traditional word processor.

Corel(r) XMetaL(r) for ActiveX(r) is an editing interface that
developers can embed into any ActiveX-compliant Windows(r) application,
including Web browsers. Corel XMetaL for ActiveX features comprehensive
editing and document viewing functionality, delivering robust XML
creation capabilities to business users virtually anywhere.

Corel(r) XMetaL(r) Developer is a centralized development environment
for creating Corel XMetaL customizations and applications. Designed as a
plug-in for Microsoft(r) Visual Studio(r) .NET, it enables developers to
use familiar Web development skills such as scripting, COM and DOM to
create customizations for both XMetaL Author and XMetaL for ActiveX.
Corel XMetaL 4 Developer also lets developers create and edit Cascading
Style Sheets (CSS) and includes the Corel XMetaL Forms Toolkit for
creating custom forms interfaces.

Corel(r) XMetaL(r) Central completes the platform by providing a
server-based XML environment management tool that simplifies the
deployment and maintenance of customized XML applications across an
organization. Corel XMetaL Central enables IT managers to leverage the
power of Web services to remotely manage and maintain enterprise
customizations and takes advantage of Simple Object Access Protocol
(SOAP) technology to provide easy access to the most up-to-date XML
customization files, including style sheets, scripts, CSS and templates.
