Microsoft XML Notepad 2007 2.5

A useful tool for browsing and editing XML files
As the name implies, Microsoft XML Notepad 2007 is a software tool that lets you view and edit XML code. It provides a user-friendly environment for the audience with some experience in web design.

The interface of the tool resembles the one of Notepad, so navigating through its features shouldn't be difficult if you are already familiarized with the word processing tool.

Loading XML items into the working environment can be done by using either the file browser or "drag and drop" function.

So, you can insert elements, attributes, text, comments, CDATA and processing instructions, view the source code in a plain text document, as well as compare XML files and create XML schemes.

Furthermore, it is possible to insert, rename or duplicate the selected node, convert it to another type (element, attribute, text etc), expand the XIncludes area, use a search and replace function, as well as to export errors to an external file for further analysis. Plenty of customization settings can be changed from the Options screen, such as the attribute, background and comment colors, font name and update location. These options can be restored to their default values.

Microsoft XML Notepad 2007 includes a help file, runs on a moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, has a good response time and includes a help file for all skill levels. We have not experienced any errors throughout our evaluation and the application did not hang or crash. Thanks to its intuitive layout and features, Microsoft XML Notepad 2007 should satisfy all users who often work with XML files.
