How about Vim? By 'understanding' do you mean that it does syntax
highlighting? If so, Vim might be the one you are looking for.

Emacs, of course, has an XML mode. But if you're one of those who
actually likes VI, you may not like Emacs; modal versus non-modal
editors tends to be a very strong preference (classic "religious war"
material, in fact.)

"Master, does Emacs have Buddha-nature?"
"... I can't see why not. It has everything else."

With vi a user can corrupt the xml file, if the editor understands xml
I hope it can deny saving corrupted files.

FWIW - I've used KDevelop with XML highlighting.

Eclipse also has XML Perspectives. I haven't actually used them, but
this article describes one called XMLBuddy that looks reasonable.

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/os-ecxml/

It also looks like it offers validation of your XML against schemas or
DTDs etc.

HTH,

Pete.

Emacs with psgml-mode, onsgmls, xsl-ide, dtd-mode, and assorted bells
and whistles gives you a complete XML system that will run in a terminal.

psgml-mode is nice, but Emacs with nxml-mode will validate your XML
file as you type. If you use viper-mode you can even keep your
vi-style keystrokes.

If you really need something that works without X then Emacs is
essentially your only choice. On the other hand, Emacs is a pretty
compelling choice no matter what your requirements might be.
