Description Nicolas Mailhot 2002-10-07 05:34:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020809

Description of problem:
While xml editing is painfull with psgml in emacs (<a
href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=75321">bug 75321</a>
it is almost impossible for xml domuments that use the xsl xml dialect.

RH has been shipping XSL documents in its docbook-style-xsl rpm for a few
versions, xsl stylesheets are beginning to be used by major projects like gnome
so this is no obscure language.

This can be solved easily by shipping the xlide minor mode, which is both small,
powerfull and stable. I can't believe the time I've lost editing xsl documents
by refusing to install third-party software on my redhat, when I tried xslide at
last it changed my world:)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:

	

Additional info:

Please include xslide in future release or at least install something as
powerfull, right now I can't imagine (or rather I can imagine too well) how
people do xsl editing on RH.

Thanks.  Yes, this would be useful.
Comment 3 Chris Ricker 2003-01-29 12:34:08 EST
I second this -- it'd be useful for me as well when working with XSL
Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2003-02-26 16:49:21 EST
I'd still like it to go in (hint, hint:)

Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2003-10-17 06:53:07 EDT
Actually I think nXML might be a better bet than xslide.  What do you think?

Comment 7 Nicolas Mailhot 2003-10-17 08:36:28 EDT
xlide is old and boring and is used by lots of people including xemacs and
emacspeak (new package in fedora.us queue btw)

nxml looks very promising but I'm not sure enough people have had time to play
with it yet to iron out bugs.

xslide is easy to add short term, mid-term nxml can probably replace both psgml
and xlide for xml/xsl editing.

so it really depends if you want a hard break or not
