Quark XML Author for Microsoft Word
Quark XML Author is an add-in to Microsoft Word that allows anyone using Microsoft Word to easily create structured XML content without knowledge of XML and little or no training. The familiar, simple, and full-featured user interface makes it possible for anyone – not just technical experts – to use Microsoft Word to create valid XML-based content components that can be published to a variety of print and digital media.
