Adding this note to round out this posting (some of this was provided in an offline email, but others might be interested).
XMetaL is only really designed to make changes to files on the local file system (stored on your hard drive). Integrations between XMetaL and a CMS assume that the CMS will deliver checked out files to the local machine, typically in some agreed-upon cache location.
A particular CMS vendor could provide a means to search for particular files (and some do) within their CMS, and they might also offer an XMetaL-specific feature to find our PIs (or other content), and perhaps even modify these things. However, this functionality is really dependent on what the CMS vendor can provide. Exposing that functionality within XMetaL Author Enterprise would be up to the people that offer the integration (we call it a “connector”) between XMetaL and the CMS, and in most cases these “connectors” are provided by the CMS vendor as well (which is the case with Trisoft).
