Veridocs, a provider of XML software, consulting, and development services, has announced the availability XMLdocs Version 1, a hosted XML document authoring and management system. For the release, Veridocs has added a new "Template Designer" feature not available on the product's Beta Version. Template Designer allows organizations to create templates from schemas (or use an existing template from XMLdocs as a starting point for a new template) for everything from press releases and product descriptions to knowledge-based articles and help documents. Using these templates, non-technical users write XML documents via the XMLdocs Editor's interface. Documents can then be exported for publication on a Web site or elsewhere through a Web Service. Individual users of XMLdocs can register for the product and create a personal workspace for free. Group fees start at $99 per month.
