Personally, I'd use a text editor... NoteTab, EditPlus, or one of those. At their essence, xml pages aren't any different from html pages.

This is the same as any other web development tool question really.  And ericpete is right in saying the best option is a plain text editor.

Doing a search a found http://www.xmlspy.com/ turn up a lot.
I also found http://www.vervet.com/index.html
http://www.merlotxml.org/ is open source so I guess it's free.
And another editor can be found at http://www.xmlwriter.net/

In fact, I am starting to find heaps of them.  But having not used any of them I can't recommend any.  All I can say is you want to make sure it is one that doesn't mess your code and change it to suit what it thinks is best.  Web browsers read plain text and convert them according to their MIME type.  If the end result is not plain text, don't use it.

I do a lot of XML development, and I've used more than a few editors.  
I don't use a normal text editor becuase they take too long.  Who wants to type or cut/paste closing tags like:
</csrv:d_xx14332>
all day?  No thanks.  I like my tag completion.

On the M$ side, I really like the Visual XSLT tool.  It inserts directly into Visual Studio, and has great functionality.  CHeck it out at:

For free, you can't beat XML Cooktop.  Check them out at:
http://www.xmleverywhere.com/cooktop/

And, of course, XMLSpy is good, too.  

On the Linux side, I use XAE, which inserts directly into XEmacs.  It's great, because I use XEmacs for everything, so I don't want to get off my couch.  It's at:

 Watch the Recording: Learning MySQL 5.7

MySQL 5.7 has a lot of new features. If you've dabbled with an older version of MySQL, it is definitely worth learning.

This question has been abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the
moderators on its resolution in a week or two. I appreciate any comments
that would help me to make a recommendation.
<note>
   In the absence of responses, I will recommend DELETE unless it is clear
   to me that it has value as a PAQ.  Silence = you don't care

A lot of options were given here.  Edmund seems to be giving recommendations through experience.  Which suggests it is probably the best selection.  Although experience doesn't always end in education.  Tough call!
