Quark XML Author for Microsoft Word
Quark XML Author is an add-in to Microsoft Word that allows anyone using Microsoft Word to easily create structured XML content without knowledge of XML and little or no training. The familiar, simple, and full-featured user interface makes it possible for anyone – not just technical experts – to use Microsoft Word to create valid XML-based content components that can be published to a variety of print and digital media.

Quark XML Author offers off-the-shelf integration with leading content management systems such as Microsoft SharePoint®, EMC® Documentum®, and IBM® FileNet® Content Manager. These integrations allow analysts to access common features of the CMS directly from within Word, as well as collaboration beyond Word commenting and change tracking through the use of formal workflows.
