Is the future of XML planned to be without XML? Visual tools are everywhere and XProc might be the first XML dialect to be immediately available with its visual editor. After erratic evolutions, visual tools have become more and more precise (even HTML+CSS tools are now very powerful), and have become more and more main stream. Could we imagine dealing with XML Schema without decent Visual Tools? We will show in this presentation an overview of where we do XML without seeing any angle bracket and the places where we expect to have some equivalent tools soon.
