Q: Why do I need to have IE installed?
You need to have Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher installed to run XMLwriter. XMLwriter uses IE's rendering
engine for its internal browser preview, and IE's MSXML parser by default to perform validation and XSL transformation.
Please Note: XMLwriter can be configured to preview files externally in Netscape and other browsers.
Also, if you prefer to use a different parser for validation/XSL transformation you can configure
3rd-party parsers in XMLwriter using the plug-in
and User Tool features.
Plug-ins and User Tools support parsers such as Apache Xerces/Xalan and many more.
