RE: XML tools
For me, the comparison between Stylus and oXygen is more to do with personal preference than product features. I tend to use oXygen for most of my development work - Schema modelling, XSLT/XQuery development and debugging, Schematron development etc. I recently forced myself to use Stylus and oXygen on alternate days for a two week schema modelling task. I was quite surprised to find I was more productive using oXygen for the way I work. In the end I used more of its features more often (more of the pretty panels did things that were useful to me). Like Jonathan, I use both tools and see value in both. But I've yet to come across a case where my business would be *significantly* impacted by the use of only one. I can see that Stylus may have a competitive edge with its data integration tools (EDI to XML etc).

Hi George, I did not mean to imply that oXygen does not have these features. Personally, I do prefer Stylus for most data integration, debugging, pipelines, and related tasks. I tend to use Emacs or oXygen for document-oriented work, and Stylus for data munging.
