I have been looking for a "perfect" XML editor, and today I realized the one used in Inkscape is exactely the way I would want, because:

  • It has multi-panel (tree, attribute-list, and value text-box);
  • Folding and highlight;
  • The tags and XML syntax are kept invisible (and so protected from typos)

You can see what I mean here:

The only problem is... IT IS PART OF INKSCAPE, ONLY!

Does anyone know a similar program for standalone use, or a way to use that editor independently from inkscape?

I was not aware of the XML editor in InkScape. Thanks for info! – fpmurphy1 Apr 7 '11 at 16:05

It may not look nice, but I use gedit for all my programming needs. It's really bare-bones, but it has tons of plugins, so maybe you could find (or write) a few to suit your needs.
