Belus Technology Inc., Toronto, has released an editor for developers generating XHTML 1.1 markup. The XStandard WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get") is an ActiveX control tool that is designed for content management systems to also allow business users to author and format content.
XStandard permits the authoring of multi-lingual content, supports layout and data tables, lists, hyperlinks, floats and drag-and-drop, Belus said. Files can be uploaded and referenced from libraries using SOAP-based Web services.
Belus said its XStandard editor ensures that code generated by content authors contains no deprecated (outdated) markup, is well formed and XHTML 1.1 compliant.
