AbstractThis article explores ways to edit XML files. XML is the format of the source of CBETA's text files, so finding good and powerful tools to work with these files is of central importance to the success of the project.

As described here,the author was looking for a suitable editor for SGML/XML files for many years. There are a number of such editors available,but most of them do not support the Chinese language or are cumbersome to use or both. Only recently,he found that nowadays Emacs in conjunction with PSGML can not only serve as a high-quality XML editing environment,but has also the facilities to handle Chinese and many other languages very well. Emacs also has the potential to serve not only as an editor,but also as a whole reading environment for the CBETA texts, including indices, dictionaries on the like.

The article then proceeds to give some starting points for working with Emacs and closes with a very short comparison of how the paradigm of markup,which is central to the success of CBETA's work procedure,as compared to other methods, e.g. editing files in wordprocessors like Microsoft Word.
