SMILGen is a SMIL (and XML) authoring tool designed to ease the process of XML content creation. SMILGen understands XML syntax and handles the nesting and formatting XML.
This allows authors to worry about the content that they are trying to author with out having to remember each quote and closing brace. SMILGen also understands the languages it authors, it knows what attributes a specific element uses or what child elements a given element may contain.
Both of these features help eliminate a number of common XML syntax errors as well as making it easier to edit with out having a reference to the language right by your side.
Internally SMILGen uses objects to represent each known element. The element objects know what children they may contain or what attributes they have. SMILGen uses this information to assist content authors by letting them know what children an element may contain or by displaying the attributes for a given element when it is edited.
SMILGen also has namespace support both for known namespaces and unknown namespaces. Known namespaces can be imported into any document at which point all of their attributes and elements become available to the document. Unknown namespaces can be parsed as well.
Although SMILGen is not psychic and will not know about elements or attributes that are NOT in the document, it will generate a namespace representation of the imported namespace and it will deduce what elements and attributes are available in the namespace based upon the data in the document.
SMILGen currently supports SMIL 1, SMIL 2 and RealPix. It is designed to be modular. Any xml language that does not use #PCDATA can have a class representation created with out a great deal of effort. Future versions (1.5-2.0 time frame) will also have support for xml languages that allow #PCDATA and inline attributes.
