Does an open source version of "XML Tidy" exist?

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.
