This paper presents a comparison of textual and visual syntax notation of Domain-Specific Language (DSL) programs on the example of DOMMLite DSL[3]. Starting from the definition of DOMMLite meta-model, the prototypes of both textual and graphical editors are implemented using tools of the Eclipse Modeling Project. Initial observations in favor and against both syntax notations are summarized and the impact of the chosen concrete syntax on the team development and version control is analyzed.
