            Honestly, you can use a plain old text editor to edit XML.

            When it comes time to validate it, I just open the XML file directly in FireFox; if it shows the structured data, everything is well-formed, if not, it tends to point out where the problem is (or where it got to when it broke).

            I don't tend to recommend trying the same in IE, it doesn't handle errors as well, and occasionally makes up errors because of how it parses things.

            Personally, I use the UltraEdit / Firefox combo at work, even though I have XMLSpy.
