What will it take to get (end user) XML editors that people will use?
Many of us in the markup community have given up on the dream of ubiquitous XML. We still think the world would be better off with more XML and less proprietary data, but we know it isn’t going to happen without a game-changing invention. The world as a whole is simply not going to embrace XML in the way we had hoped without a painless way to create XML documents. We need XML editors that can be learned easily, that create the XML that savvy (and not-so-savvy) users want, that people can afford, and that can tolerate being used very badly. So, what will it take to get XML editors that don’t suck?
