A-Z glossary of PageSeeder concepts


The XFormat is a comprehensive XML representation of both PageSeeder's interface and content prior to processing through the layout manager. It is a temporary view that is assembled then transformed into HTML for display by the browser.

For developers, the XFormat is a key tool for debugging modifications to PageSeeder's user interface. Switching to the developer perspective exposes the developer tools and provides an option to serve the XFormat instead of the HTML view of the system.
