It's got a decent interface, and I think if you're working with other writers who aren't comfortable using Emacs/PSGML, it ought to appeal to them especially. Dislikes: * non-Free software Likes: * fast, and can handle very large documents without running into performance problems * full regex search-and-replace * cross-platform (Linux, Solaris, Windows) * WYSIWYG editing of CALS/OASIS Exchange Table Model and HTML tables * control over character formatting during on-screen editing (but using a non-standard stylesheet language -- not CSS) * works with full SGML as well as XML * support for SGML Open/OASIS catalog files * can display railroad diagrams for any element in a DTD http://www.logopoeia.com/xml/images/railroad.png * automatic population of browsable lists of valid ID values for attributes whose type is IDREF (like DocBook's linkend and endterm attributes) http://www.logopoeia.com/images/idrefBrowseEpcEdit.png * Unicode support * support for drag-and-drop of text and elements * Tcl source code for the user interface provided Morphon also has some of those features.
