Michael Gelman, United States Senate
Making Markup Invisible: XML Legislative
Drafting With No Author-Visible Tags - The
Office of the Secretary of the United States Senate is
developing and implementing an XML-based editing
system for the authoring of legislation designed to
make the highly structured markup completely
transparent to users. Authors work in an environment
similar to that of a word processor in a completely
"tags-off" view, with the system maintaining the
markup and structure behind the scenes at all times.
This system reduces the XML knowledge burden on
subject-matter experts to almost zero, allowing
authors to concentrate on content while needing to
know almost nothing about markup.
