InfoPath is a brand new product in the Microsoft Office System. Unlike Word, Excel, and Access, InfoPath was built from the ground up to create and edit XML. It carries much of the same promise as the rest of Office's new XML functionality: to bring XML to the masses. Or perhaps more precisely, it promises to get XML from the masses. By enabling everyday Office users to fill out XML-based business forms for everything from status reports to press releases to invoices to memos, InfoPath has the potential to open the floodgates to the creation of XML data in the enterprise.
