      A modern text editor will give you syntax highlighting etc, but a

      specialised tool will give you features such as validating that the

      XML is compliant.



      Use what is comfortable for you :)

          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.
