Limitations - please read.

The Latest version is 2.2
XML Marker is very good at what it does, which is source-level XML editing, but it has some important limitations:
  • No printing.
  • Limited DTD functionality.
  • No validation of the text that is entered using the table views.
  • Does not directly support all the technologies that are build on top of xml – it simply provides generic XML and DTD functionality.
  • No Unicode. That means that you cant use XML marker to read or write XML files that contains non-ascii text. – fixed in version 2.0

We are planning to address these limitations the next versions.

True, XML Marker 1.1 does not have Unicode support. that should be fixed in the next version.

Any idea on when the next version will be released? This is nice application, but lack of UTF-8/16 support hurts.

yigal 2011-02-24

It should be released within few months. Sorry for the very long delay.

Do you plan to include XPath and XQuery support?

yigal 2011-02-24

Eventually yes. Not in the next release though. 2011-08-10

Can I use XML Marker to open and validate large files (2.5gb)? What is the file size limitation that XML Marker can handle before application performance is degraded.

yigal 2011-08-11

No. not 2.5 gb. The practical limitation is around 600mb of a moderately complicated xml file. Version 2 should be able to handle about 900mb. The test file that I used is opencyc-latest.xml available from .

The current version indeed suffer from degradation that starts at about 200 mg . This was fixed in the upcoming version 2.
