The Arboreal XML browser is a powerful and flexible tool developed by the Archimedes Project for content-based access to, and annotation of, XML texts. Arboreal includes special features for working with parallel versions of texts, morphology and terminology, and linked images.

Arboreal supports many standards and is designed as a cross-platform tool that can be used on many different computing systems.
