I guess you're right, I prefer just using a programmer's editor that I can
customize like synedit. Something about XMetal rubs me the wrong way, but
I'm not sure what it is, just never have liked it. Something about Xml Spy

I thought about outputting entities I probably thought more about my, and
maybe a couple other people that I work with, convenience.
