"With FrameMaker XML Author, Adobe has created a cost-effective tool for technical authors who do not need the WYSIWYG editing environment of the full product. As FrameMaker XML Author includes a well-designed XPath search engine and has a choice of two built-in XSLT processors, there is not much more you need to create a low-budget authoring solution for XML-based structured content."
—Jang Graat, The Content Era 



“As more and more companies convert to structured authoring using DITA or other XML standards, the need to facilitate the work of non-specialist and casual authors has become acute. The new release of Adobe FrameMaker XML Author takes a major step forward by providing out-of-the-box workspace solutions to help such authors write easily and maintain the rules of the underlying model, while masking the inner workings of XML.”
—Ray Gallon, Owner, Culturecom and co-founder, The Transformation Society 



"Adobe FrameMaker XML Author now handles MathML and SVG as a part of DITA 1.3. Technical details haven't been forgotten either with scoped keys, UXWindow controls, metadata for release management, delivery targets, and the highlight domain. There is just so much to DITA 1.3 that is supported, right out-of-the-box!"
—Bernard Aschwanden, Founder and President, Publishing Smarter
