(QUICK ONES are bigger than a tweet, but not much!)
A colleague, Willy Farrell., pointed me to a free (as in freedom and free beer) XML editor called Notepad++ It's designed for Windows but ran OK for me under Wine. I thought I'd point out a few other options for XML editing since developerWorks articles need to be in XML.
Right now, I struggle with setting up any of these to give me a good WYSIWYG view with the developerWorks article kit, probably because I'm just not pointing them to the style sheets in the right way. I will admit that for my regular editing I'm using a rather expensive professional editor called Oxygen, which came with my editor's chair. It works well in Linux and I like it. However, if I was not so endowed you'd be sure I'd have my answer in one of the free options... because I'm stubborn that way. Perhaps I'll spend some time figuring it out. If I do I'll share my findings like I always do.
