Need advice about opensource XML editor

Don
I tried several editors for XML file, XML schema, and XSLT. XMLSpy is
really good, but one month goes fast. And others are not so powerful.
Any idea? I tried to make Eclipse WST work for 2 times and could not :-(

Cheers,

Don

But not good enough to purchase?

Bite the bullet and buy the thing. I use oxygenXML and am happy with it.

I posted a similar question here recently. <oXygen/> is great. I use it at
work. It would be nice, though, to know of a passable free tool that I can
load up on whatever/wherever machine I happen to be working without worrying
about licenses. Perhaps, there is no such beast?

I don't think there is.

I installed the *all-in-one* package of eclipse WTP yesterday. It works
great.

Don't know about opensource, but there is a free "Home Edition" of XML Spy,
obviously it doesn't have all the features of the full edition.

I have start a comparison table on several XML editors used as Eclipse plugins:

One can comment this table by posting comment on my blog using this URL:

Hope that will help you to choose a tool.

Emacs with psgml-mode, xxml-mode, tdtd-mode, xslt-ide-mode, etc etc.
Runs on everything, but needs learning.
