For XML & XSLT editing on both Linux and Windows I am very happy with the XML and XSLT plug-ins for jEdit. jEdit is an programmer's text editor written in Java, being developed by Slava Pestov and others. It has an extensible plug-in architecture, with more than 60 plug-ins available. It's free software under the GPL. The XML plug-in has many features to aid editing; my favourites from the many are: - the auto-completion of a closing tag when "</" is typed; - the list of available elements at the current location when "<" is typed if there is a DTD declared, or in the case of ANT and XSLT files the available elements are pre-configured in the plug-in; - a dialog of attribute options for an element if you hit enter after selecting your element choice (a helpful reminder); - folding on indents (a general feature of the editor), or folding based on customized syntax (via another plug-in). The XSLT plug-in allows you to run XSL transformations in the editor; you can configure one or more stylesheets to be in the transformation pipe-line (I am surprised that not all XSLT editors support a multiple stylesheet pipe-line option). There is also a XPath tool that let's you try out XPath 1.0 expressions. I am currently finishing off some enhancements to the XPath output views that should be available soon in the next XSLT plug-in release (I liked it so much I started contributing). jEdit's definitely worth checking out, regardless of the platform you are running on.
