SILGraphite (formerly OpenGraphite) is a project within SIL's Non-Roman Script Initiative and Language Software Development groups to provide extensible cross-platform rendering capabilities for complex non-Roman writing systems. It consists of a rule-based programming language, Graphite Description Language (GDL), that can be used to describe the behavior of a writing system, a compiler for that language, and a rendering engine that can serve as the backend of a text processing application. SILGraphite renders TrueType fonts that have been extended by means of compiling a GDL program. It is currently being integrated into Gecko/Mozilla through the SILA project, a GNU/Linux port is also underway, and there are plans for OpenOffice.org and Abiword integration.
xmlizer configurator/server is a client/server approach for custom database to XML mapping. The configurator is used to set up projects and the server delivers the processed requests on demand (like a Web server) according to the mapping rules made with the configurator, which includes a drag and drop GUI. One module is for dumping databases (or parts of it) in a fixed format and the other module can build XML instances satisfying a specified XML Schema (or DTD).
Xml Validation Interoperability Framework (xvif) is a proposal to embed pipe definitions in grammar based schema languages such as Relax NG (and probably W3C XML Schema). The current implementation is built on a partial implementation of Relax NG, supporting the features needed to provide a representative proof of concept. It is available both as Python source code and as an online demonstration. Although there is no endorsement of any kind by the DSDL ISO initiative (http://dsdl.org), one of the goals of this prototype is to gather feedback which may be used (or not) by "DSDL Part 1 - Interoperability Framework".
