Re: XML tools
I personally use oXygenXML, and like it a lot for the kind of one-of tasks that I have to throw at it. Some of the characteristics that make it suit my needs are the price range, it has a nice mix of content editing features without being an overwhelming user interface, and there are rarely times when I think to myself "Gee, I wish the tool hadn't done THAT to my source" - but when that does happen usually they've anticipated the need to control such behavior with a configuration option. This is subjective, but oXygen doesn't have the appearance or feature set of a "heavy duty" development environment or an enterprise studio class of product, but it has a much more robust set of features and is more usable than the open source options of which I am aware. Service means something too, and in my experience the vendor has been very responsive. If you are looking for something of an enterprise suite, especially if you are looking for features like XQuery and integration in a Microsoft environment, also consider Stylus Studio. One thing I'd look out for with the open source is what they'll do when you open real world, ugly, long-line, and/or malformed XML. The browser based solutions in particular are really not for cleanup and data manipulation work. I'll also second Betty Harvey's remark about the Syntext Serna editor - the interface has a feel that I can only describe as "silky".
