Veridocs, a provider of XML software, consulting, and development services, has announced the upcoming availability of XMLdocs Beta Release. XMLdocs is a Web-based system for creating XML content management solutions. The Beta Release will be available free online. XMLdocs Version 1, slated for release in February 2003, will be available on a hosted basis. With XMLdocs, organizations can create XML document templates for everything from press releases and product descriptions to knowledge-based articles and help documents. Using these templates, non-technical users write and edit XML documents in XMLdoc's intuitive XML word processor. Documents can then be exported for publication on a Web site or elsewhere through a simple Web Service.
