A-Z glossary of PageSeeder concepts


PSML (PageSeeder Markup Language) refers to the new PageSeeder document format as a replacement for the xformat and PS XML format. It is part of the Universal format.


PSML is a simplified and unified version of the XML used for documents in PageSeeder and aims to address a number of shortcomings with the xformat and the standard schema.

In particular, it merges aspects of the xformat and of the standard schema to provide a simpler and more consistent document format with its own extension and media type.


Deployment schedule

The PSML format was introduced in version 5.2 of PageSeeder and can be created using the <ps:export> ANT Task.

In later versions of PageSeeder, PSML will become the native format used by documents.
