What makes PageSeeder different?

Traditional publishing tools add to or delete information from documents. This approach makes it difficult to manage the change process. PageSeeder is different because:

  • The source file is never changed. Internally, every edit is actually a copy making it possible to effectively track or reverse any change.
  • Every edit is clearly identified and auditable by date, time and author.
  • Documents are composed of structured fragments, a design which reduces complexity for users while improving the quality of XML structures.

PageSeeder is the world's first enterprise publishing platform based on the W3C's XLink standard. This architecture means that publishing can finally migrate to the Internet and away from the thirty year old personal computing architecture.

PageSeeder XLink Architecture
  • Documents are broken into a series of fragments, each with a unique ID.
  • Edits, comments and tasks are represented contextually with an XLink annotation containing updated content for the fragment.
  • The PageSeeder XML/XLink Processor takes each fragment of the original document in turn and queries the XLink Database for annotations. Found annotations replace the original fragment content. 
  • Resolved documents and new versions can then be easily created. At the same time, no information has been lost and every change can be undone.
User-friendly browser-based Validation

PageSeeder's XLink architecture allows writers to edit and validate XML data for demanding schemas through a standard Web browser. As a result, the cost and time associated with making writers productive is greatly reduced.
