This document describes the XML-RPC interface implemented by UserLand
discussion groups.


With a compatible editor you can easily create and edit web pages with
workstation editors that are not browser based. It's a way, thru scripting,
to work around limits in the browser as an editing environment, without
giving up the convenience of direct-connect thru HTTP.

Support is in development, in the community, for Emacs, BBEdit, AppleScript,
ShockWave and Windows COM-compatible editors such as MS-Word, and no doubt
others. We are also working with other discussion group software vendors to
support this specification.

For UserLand, this is the back-end for our editorial groupware system, and a
new web writer's tool we have in development. But the interface can be used
for all kinds of workflow and groupware. The more the merrier!
