Subject: OASIS Member News -- Corel and Xcential Provide Government Customers with XML Tools for Legislation Creation

For Immediate Release

Corel and Xcential Provide Government Customers with XML Tools for
Legislation Creation

Offering Reduces Costs and Increases Efficiency of Creating Legislation
and Regulations

Ottawa, Canada and Escondido, CA - July 16, 2003 - Corel Corporation
(NASDAQ: CORL, TSX: COR) and Xcential Group, LLC today announced a
partnership to provide government customers a robust XML application
specifically designed for the creation, amendment and delivery of
legislation. Xcential's LegisPro is built upon the Corel(R) XMetaL(R)
platform to create an optimal environment that improves efficiency and
reduces the costs associated with creating and maintaining legislation
and regulations. 

The XMetaL/LegisPro solution is ideal for government applications
because it leverages the power of XML, making it extremely adaptable to
complex processes and procedures. The solution improves accuracy by
ensuring all XML documents are valid, allowing editors to focus on the
content of the measures rather than the markup - users can write valid
XML content without ever seeing a tag. Moreover, it enables government
customers to easily automate the publishing process, allowing them to
produce legislation and other regulations faster and easier than ever

LegisPro is a customized application that is layered on top of the Corel
XMetaL word processor-like interface - providing a powerful,
user-friendly and intuitive application for authoring, editing and
amending legislation. XMetaL and LegisPro deliver the essential tools
that legislation creators need, including an ideal environment for
collaborative writing; complex document linking; and precise version
control, enabling draft bills to be managed down to the component level.

"Government customers recognize the tremendous benefits of XML. Corel
and Xcential simplify the rollout of an XML environment by providing an
application that is specifically designed to meet the complex
requirements of government agencies," said Bruce Sharpe, vice president
of XML content solutions at Corel. 

"XML has become a standard among government agencies, with legislation
among the earliest applications. LegisPro gives government customers the
ability to create highly structured XML data without needing to have any
special XML programming skills. By providing them with capabilities like
presenting text in context and the ability to drag and drop information
from multiple sources, users will find the experience of authoring
legislation to be easier than ever before," said Mark Peters, vice
president of sales and marketing at Xcential.

Corel and Xcential will be presenting the LegisPro/XMetaL solution at
the National Conference of State Legislatures Annual Meeting and
Exposition in San Francisco, CA from July 23rd to July 25th. Show
attendees are invited to visit the Xcential booth (#110) to see the
joint solution in action. In addition, Xcential will be presenting
LegisPro and XMetaL as part of the conference panel discussion, "XML
Editors and Open Source Solutions" on Thursday, July 24th from 3:30 p.m.
to 5:00 p.m. at the San Francisco Marriott Hotel.
