In an article for Writer’s UA, Antonio DaSilva reviews XMLMind, a user-friendly XML editor from Pixware that boasts an impressive list of features. DaSilva says XMLMind is “one of those rare software finds; an “insanely great” application singular in its ingenuity, quality, and usability.”

Here’s a snippet from DaSilva’s review: “Few software products offer a similar level of elegance and functionality, regardless of price and pedigree. Once you use it, you’ll appreciate the thoughtful and elegant approach XXE’s developers took in creating a product robust enough for experienced authors, yet simple enough to provide a gentle entry for those of us new to structured authoring. With XXE, you’re ready to take full advantage of XML’s promise for authoring narrative content,” DaSalvo wrote.

“Risking nothing but the time it takes to download the Standard Edition, you’ll quickly grow to appreciate XXE’s simplicity and usability. If your experience is anything like mine, you’ll soon move towards the Professional Edition. I know I’m gushing, but the $220 I spent for the Professional Edition was as much a reward to Pixware for giving away such an outstanding product, as it was an investment in my productivity.”

As always, your mileage may vary.
