There are a wide variety of XML editors, you know. Some are WYSIWYG,
some are just emacs-style text editors with a mode to help edit the
As a concrete example, a WYSWYG XML editor called xxe has a quite
usable freeware version, as well as a fancier paid version, and a
Google Code profile for editing xml2rfc. It formats the text as you
write, like Word does.
I'm not a fan of WYSIWYG editors, but I find xxe no worse than Word. It's
written in Java so it runs on lots of platforms.
See http://www.xmlmind.net/xmleditor/ for more info. It's in the FreeBSD
ports collection, there's probably linux packages too.
