XML Notepad 2007 (originally called XML Notepad 2006) is an open source XML editor written by Chris Lovett and offered by Microsoft as a replacement to the original XML Notepad.[1] The editor features incremental search in both tree and text views, drag/drop support, IntelliSense, find/replace with regular expressions and XPath expressions, and support for XInclude.[2][1] The editor has good performance on large XML documents and has real time XML schema validation.[1] The editor also features an HTML viewer for displaying XSLT transformation results and a built-in XML comparison tool.[1][4][5]

The program's source code was made available on CodePlex on April 20, 2007.[6]

The program currently has over 1 million downloads.[7]

History [edit]

The original XML Notepad, which was written in 1998 by Murray Low in C++, was unmaintained and thus fell behind in its support for XML standards. Microsoft thus decided to remove the program off MSDN. Subsequently, MSDN was inundated with requests to put the program back up, but due to its lack of support for modern XML standards, a replacement was written in C# by Chris Lovett using the System.Xml library of the .NET Framework 2.0.[1]

Only a few months after the release of XML Notepad 2006, Microsoft changed the name to XML Notepad 2007. The new version featured several bug fixes as well as Vista compatibility and Vista-like icons.[8][9]
