Serna Free

Serna Free

Syntext Serna Free XML editor is an easy-to-use open source What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) XML editor for those who wish to adopt the XML technology.

This application combines the unique WYSIWYG approach with intuitive behaviour to help writers with virtually no XML experience to freely author XML documents.

Composite XML documents are visualized using XSLT & XSL-FO stylesheets as a transparent integrated whole. This is not only visually convenient but also dramatically accelerates the authoring process.

Syntext Serna offers multi-channel publishing, including out-of-the-box publishing to HTML and external publishing to PDF with FOP, XEP, or Antenna House XSL Formatter.
