Currently almost all legislative bodies throughout Europe use general purpose word-processing software for the drafting of legal documents. These regular word processors do not provide specific support for legislative drafters and parliamentarians to facilitate the legislative process. Furthermore, they do not natively support metadata on regulations. This paper describes how the MetaLex regulation-drafting environment (MetaVex) aims to meet such requirements. © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
