Download Serna Free
Serna Free is an open source, powerful XML editor. It is geared toward those with no experience and uses WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) for ease of use. Its appearance is a lot like a word processor so it is very easy to learn.

When most people look for an XML editor they want ease of use. They don't want to spend a lot of time learning the ins and outs of all the options and tools. Serna Free is simple to operate and very user friendly.

Its user interface is localized into languages that include French, German, Chinese, Italian and many more. Features include drag and drop editing, multilingual spell checking and context-sensitive element help. It also supports several document types such as Docbook, XHTML, NITF and others.

Serna Free is designed for home needs, education and other non-commercial users. Unlike HTML, XML isn't used just to build web pages. It can support unlimited tags and therefore has nearly limitless applications. Content that is reused is shown as part of the document, unnoticeable from the regular content. This is very convenient as well as labor saving. Serna Free makes it easy to exchange data between web applications; it is particularly helpful for commercial sites that need to simplify operations such as ordering and communicating with shippers at a different site.

Serna Free also has ContentMap, a feature that lets you view a tree structure of a document on the left pane. It updates automatically as you create your document and the current ContentMap element is highlighted so that you always know exactly where you are.
