I like how stylus displays a dropdown list of legal attribute choices. Would it be possible to have it also display a list of required attribute values. What I mean is if you have a month attribute list and the dtd says month has JAN, FEB, etc as the only valid values, then the dropdown would appear with just those values.
I am forever forgetting what my dtd says about these things so this would really help with my failing memory.

Is this essentially the same RFI I was going to post (or different?) whereby the values of an enumeration (aka string restriction) are shown in a popup menu in both grid and text editors.
In general, there seems to be a missing "view" on the XML data, and that is a "data entry" tab where the view/editor is optimized for validated (and helpful popups/shortcuts) data entry using everything known from the DTD/Schema defs.
None of the existing text/grid/tree views quite do it. I know this is aimed at XML designers but a relatively simple addition would make it a good XML data production tool too.
