  1. Can anyone suggest a good, free XML editor? This will be my first attempt at getting into an XML file. I just want to look at the data for now, but eventually I would like to do some of the editing as well. Any advise on this would be greatly appreciated!

    I wouldn't go looking for a XML app. But a text editor with XML color coding. Because XML doesn't really have inherent "functions" or anything like that to make it easier to "write" XML. Because XML is entirely "made up" by you. You create your own tags and so forth.
    When I do XML I just use a text editor. But I suppose if you are scaling really large, a program that lays out your data like a database would help.

    I like to use for freeware, I've always had good luck with them. A quick search produced a couple progs you could look in to:


    good luck

    EditiX XML Editor


    May I suggest you EditiX , a cross-platform XML Editor and XSLT Debugger (v1.0 and v2.0). This is
    a shareware and you can use it for 30 days.

    Best regards,
