The Authentic Browser XML editing solution has several benefits, the most important of which are listed below:
•Enables multiple users to access and edit an XML document via their browsers. Currently, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher and Mozilla Firefox are supported. The 64-bit versions of Internet Explorer 10 and 11 are not supported.
•Dramatically eases organization-wide deployment and application maintenance while also reducing the total cost of ownership.
•Based upon open standards, such as XML Schema and XSLT.
•Is fully Unicode compatible.
•Uses Altova's Authentic View, which is based on the widely used and easily available Internet Explorer browser. Authentic View enables users to edit XML files in a WYSIWYG fashion, i.e. without users having to see the underlying XML code.
•Does not require deployment of any additional software since the Authentic Browser plug-in is a browser add-on.
•The Authentic Browser is an ActiveX control where the COM interface is defined by the Authentic object. The complete object model is described in the User Reference: Objects section of this documentation.
