XML Values Editor

Hello experts,

I'm looking for a tool that will allow a user to change the values of an xml node\element but not alter the core XML structure...ie the node\elements.  So let's say you had an XML dicument some thing like this:

<root>
  <Test>123</Test>
</root

The tool would display something like:
    Test: 123
where 123 would be a text box or maybe where it shows the full document like I have above and the only thing that would be editable would be the 123.  Has anyone seen a tool that does anything like this?  I could write a program to do this, but I'd rather not reinvent the wheel if I don't have too.

Well, InfoPath or any tool working with XML and formular input should be capable of doint this.

Thanks but not only has that been discontinued but it's not really what I'm looking for.  Thanks anyway.

www.oxygenxml.com has an author interface.
It allows you to do this by simply adding a CSS to your XML
However it might be overkill

Check out the standard XForms and its applications
that is another option, providing you a browser interface into XML
Here are some implementations listed

XSLTForms or Orbeon might be worth checking out
