Well, you called their version fake, ugly and confusing... These sound like comments to me. :) Anyway, I think you really shouldn't be complaining. XML SPY did not capitalize the V in Visualizer. In English, this indicates that it is *not* a proper noun (name). They have merely stated that they have *a* visualizer of XPath, not a product that they have named "(the) XPath Visualizer". If you had called your product "XPath Visualization Tool" and they said "XML SPY comes with an XPath visualization tool" would you be just as upset?
