    Michael Gelman, United States Senate
    Making Markup Invisible: XML Legislative
    Drafting With No Author-Visible Tags - The
    Office of the Secretary of the United States Senate is
    developing and implementing an XML-based editing
    system for the authoring of legislation designed to
    make the highly structured markup completely
    transparent to users. Authors work in an environment
    similar to that of a word processor in a completely
    "tags-off" view, with the system maintaining the
    markup and structure behind the scenes at all times.
    This system reduces the XML knowledge burden on
    subject-matter experts to almost zero, allowing
    authors to concentrate on content while needing to
    know almost nothing about markup.
