Is there an open source utility that will clean up my XML files?  If it checks my XML files for being valid and well formed, that would be an added bonus.  

I tried applying the open source product "HTML Tidy" to my XML files, but it doesn't like the weird tag names.

It's worth noting that I use Visual Studio all the time, will Visual Studio clean up an XML file?  (It does a nice job with an HTML file.)

Visual Studio should be able to format XML files with the designer.  Open the xml file in Visual Studio and then press CTRL+K+D.
