Using XML, can I show a code title and a code number in the browser on
screen as I mark up the text?
I've given each code category a six-digit number. Then for each code,
there is a title (two to four words) and a description ( a sentence).
I assume XML is just plain text with line breaks, corrrect?
In other words, is it possible to:
- Use my code title in code title field?
- Use my code number in the date field?
- Use my code description in the comment field?
And then, in the code browser, is it possible to see those three fields as
I mark up the text with codes on screen?
I sure would appreciate anyone telling me if I can do this.
See below an earlier response from Susanne Friese:
For rapid coding, I'd like to have visible both the code number and the
short (two, three, four-word) code description. Is this possible? If so,
how can we do it? How do we import it?

However, only the code name itself, no additional imformation is processed.
2. Using XML. This needs the import file to be in a specific (textual)
> <CODE QCOUNT="0" CCOUNT="2">
> <DATE>16.03.91 10:11:04</DATE>
> <COMMENT>Air, air, nothing but air</COMMENT>
> <CODE QCOUNT="1" CCOUNT="3">
> <DATE>16.03.91 10:10:58</DATE>
This method preserves and processes (when importing) much more code
specific information (name, author, comment, creation date). However, you
need to transform your source data into this XML format. Check this format
en detail by choosing Codes/Mis/Export Codes.
