edit SimpleTable XML in a spreadsheet-type GUI without extra formatting

### Question
Can anyone name a text editor or XML editor (prefer open source) that
can open a simple table XML file in a spreadsheet-type GUI, without
adding
any extra formatting or junk to the XML file?

For example, given the following very simple XML file:
<table>
<row>
<fname>fred</fname>
<lname>flintstone</lname>
<age>31</age>
</row>
<row>
<fname>wilma</fname>
<lname>flintstone</lname>
<age>28</age>
</row>
</table>

What Windows or Linux applications are out there that can open
this simple file in a 'spreadsheet-like' GUI and add, edit, delete
sort rows and columns (standard run of the mill spreadsheet operations)
and then save the file without adding extra proprietary formatting
or extra junk?
### Details
I know there are applications out there that can do this, but there are
problems with the existing applications, so I would like to know if
anyone knows of other applications that can do the same thing or
better:

XMLSpy ;; (has enhanced grid view, but the 'freeware' version of XMLSpy
does not have this, and the 'non-freeware' version is overkill and
too expensive)

MSFT Excel ;; (can open simple XML as read-only, but cannot save to
simple xml [the best you can do is XML SpreadSheet, which adds
a lot of unwanted extra formatting to the xml])

OpenOffice Calc ;; (does not seem to be able to open and save the
simple xml).
