Thank you. I've been looking at TLex as an option. It's a bit expensive for what is an unfunded personal project, but it does seem to be the only real option on the Mac (Arthur - and is available on Windows and I think Linux). I particularly like that it formats the entries on the fly when you edit the data.

I'm currently putting together some specific questions about it which I plan to post to the tshwanelex-l list.

I need software to set up the custom fields (since a name dictionary does not have senses for example), collect the information on each name, and then format the data for publishing. Unicode support is important, as I want to offer different versions of the names, some in RTL languages as well. I'm familiar with Adobe InDesign, so if the software could export into a format I could import into InDesign, that would be great.
