Quanta+ is OK, but it all it does is provide xsl,xml validation, but it is a
text editor, not an xml editor. Yes, I use a text editor at times to edit xml,
but you have to be very particular that you do not screw up any of the
hierarchical structure or you break the file, for short files with few subtags,
that isn't an issue, but on a large file, that is easier said than done.

xmleditor - is just that, an xml editor. It preserves the xml schema of the
document (protecting it from accidents) and gives you access to the xml 'data'.
That is what makes it superior to a text editor.
