Review and Comment on XML Documents with x4o and ALiCE

print this page

i4i's x4o (XML for Office) allows users to review and comment on XML documents in the familiar Microsoft Word interface. To the reviewer, it is simply a Microsoft Word document. Reviewers are prevented from changing the content or the XML structure - they are restricted to adding Microsoft Word comments to the document. x4o also provides track changes functionality.

In cases where there are many reviewers, manually reconciling comments and changes is a time consuming, expensive, and error prone task. ALiCE (i4i's Authoring Lifecycle Collaboration Environment) eliminates this problem. ALiCE allows you to consolidate comments and content changes from many drafts of a document into a new version of the document. Using an editing tool, such as i4i's x4o, changes and comments can be accepted/rejected or deleted accordingly.
