This can be cured:
- writing: use an editor which has context sensitive tag completion
   element inserting, element closing and so on (Emacs PSGML), or
   even hides tags completely (like XMetal)
- reading: use XSLT to produce nicely formatted HTML for browsing,
   SVG (for Ant dependencies) or whatever system best fits your
   viewing preferences.
Even better if you have a system which lets you view transformed
output while typing raw XML.
