          A digital signature is a requirement when exchanging information on an untrusted network. Since XML is used for content storage, it is important to be able to digitally sign the XML files or messages.
        • Helper Views

          There is a set of views, located by default at the side of the editing area, to help you with XML editing. They display the structure of currently edited XML elements, as well as the available attributes and entities.
      • Oxygen WebHelp for DITA and DocBook

    • Events Webinar: Guided authoring - enforcing editing rules

      When editing documents there are various rules that you want your content authors to follow, such as grammar rules, document structure guidelines, business requirements, style preferences, or rules for the generated output. To enforce these rules, companies often use grammar checking apps, custom schemas or best practice guides. For content authors, there are usually too many rules to remember them all when writing content. The best approach for this challenge is to signal the user when a rule violation is detected and offer suggestions to help them solve possible rule problems and maintain integrity in their documentation.
    • Events Webinar: Understanding and developing Schematron Quick Fixes

      Schematron solves certain limitations that other types of schema have when validating XML documents since it allows the schema developer to define the errors and control the messages that are presented to the user. Therefore, Schematron makes the validation errors more accessible to users and helps to ensures that they understand the problem. These messages may also include hints to help the user to fix the problem, but this doesn't complete the solution since the user still needs to manually correct the issue. This may cause users to waste valuable time and also creates the possibility of making additional errors while trying to manually fix the reported problem. Schematron Quick Fixes provide automatic actions to fix validation errors, thus offering a complete solution, while saving time and avoiding the potential for causing other issues.
