Using Namespaces with Arbortext Editor
With Arbortext Editor, you can open, edit, and save documents that employ XML namespaces. You can edit existing namespace values, but you cannot declare and apply new namespaces in Arbortext Editor. You can add a non-default namespace attribute with the modify_tag command, and you can insert a namespaced element with the insert_tag command. You can also add namespaced markup using the insert function. For more information, see the Arbortext Command Language Reference PDF.
Because namespace elements and attributes are not defined in the current DTD, the context checking features of Arbortext Editor ignore these elements and attributes.
