[rfc-i] RFC editing tools

I'm using Oxygen XML Editor with xml2rfc. It's not free, but the 
academic licence is cheap. I have a CSS stylesheet that lets me look at 
the draft in a view (and potentially edit) that's close to the plaintext 
ASCII version. But I mostly edit the XML source.

There are other XML editors, and most of them are extremely flexible, 
and some people have created plugins for xml2rfc for some of these.

Regards,   Martin.
