More on Altova's expanded support for Open XML; see the full post for more details and screen shots.
The latest release 2008r2 of StyleVision gives users important new functionality for creating advanced stylesheets to publish XML and database data in Word 2007, which uses the new Open XML (OOXML) data format, as well as simpler processes for publishing the same source content in other formats. And, to further ease the transition for developers and designers working with OOXML, we have just reduced the price of StyleVision considerably. As adoption of Open XML increases, StyleVision developers will be ready with a powerful tool for publishing XML and database data in what is sure to be the most predominant end-user document format, now that Open XML has been approved as an ISO standard.
This is consistent with a key theme from the controversial ODF/OOXML report Burton Group published a few months ago -- most enterprise developers aren't going to be extensively hand-coding Open XML.
