Subject: oXygen 9 beta with WYSIWYG-like editing support for DocBook


Help us testing the new tagless editing support in oXygen 9!
The support for DocBook is, as usual, ready to use. Everything you need 
to get started is here (no registration required):

Here you have some useful information:
* click on the Author tab in the editor to switch to WYSIWYG-like mode
* use the arrows, mouse and tab/shift+tab to position in the document 
(notice the location tooltip that shows you in an intuitive way the 
location in the structure, the outliner that shows the whole tree and 
the location toolbar that shows the current path in the document).
* type to add content
* press Enter to add markup through a content completion like popup, 
then you can type to select proposals or use the arrows or the mouse
* the position in the Text and Author modes is synchronized so you can 
change between them when editing and continue to work in the same 
location in the document

The WYSIWYG-like mode supports also customization and oXygen ships a 
default customizations for DocBook 4 and DocBook 5. These customizations 

- Bold, Italic, Underline actions (insert emphasis with different role 
- Insert sections, paragraphs, images
- Insert list items and lists
- Insert tables, rows, columns, cells (both CALLS and HTML table models 
are supported)
- Table management actions for joining and splitting cells

Version 9 works side by side with previous versions of oXygen. The 
tagless editing functionality will be available also in the Eclipse 
plugin and we plan to have available a beta for that in a few days.
