How It Works

Content Mapper™ lets anyone create and publish XML content using Microsoft® Word -- without knowing anything about XML.

Content Mapper goes deep in the Microsoft Word API and programs the schema elements, taking control of the user interface. Based on cursor location, elements will be grayed out if they are not allowed. The author never sees the XML and is free to focus on creating great content.


Here's an example of how it works

Below are 2 screenshots - you can see how the user interface changes depending on the location of your cursor.

In this screenshot, Content Mapper knows you are in a paragraph element and many elements, including ordered lists, are allowed and available.
