Authentic 2020

Authentic is an electronic forms editor for XML and databases.

Authentic 2020

Authentic 2020 is a powerful and dynamic electronic form editor for enterprise XML solutions. With Authentic, business users working with intuitive and dynamic forms can view and edit information stored in XML documents and SQL databases, and XBRL information management systems without being exposed to the underlying technology.

Authentic Highlights

  • Real-time validation of user input
  • Schema-based and business logic validation
  • Intelligent entry helper windows
  • Multi-language spell checker for over 100 languages
  • Support for content industry standards
  • Integration with leading CMS (content management systems)
  • Remote files access via FTP & WebDAV
  • SQL database support for content storage
  • XML Signature support
  • Multi-channel publishing to a variety of output formats: HTML, RTF, PDF, Word, OOXML


Authentic provides full support for CALS/HTML tables, which are hierarchical XML structures that in themselves define the structure of the table, specify the formatting of the table, and contain the cell contents of the table. CALS/HTML tables may be specified by when the Authentic e-form is created in StyleVision, or, if desired, by the Authentic user during XML content editing via an easy-to-use toolbar. As the user works, the XML source is updated behind the scenes.

Portable XML Forms

When an Authentic e-form is created by a designer or developer using StyleVision, it can be saved in a revolutionary file format called PXF (Portable XML Form). A PXF file embeds all the components and files required for editing in Authentic in a single file for convenient distribution.

When an end user opens a PXF file in Authentic, it includes the required XML Schema(s), XML instance(s), and SPS design file(s). It can even include the XSLT files generated by StyleVision that allow Authentic business users to publish content in HTML, Word, RTF, and/or PDF.
