Basically, you need an editor that can handle both SGML reference
concrete syntax (HTML is an SGML application) and the XML variant of
SGML syntax.  Lennart Staflin's PSGML will give you this for free, but
it is not WYSIWYG.

If you're prototyping for customers, you can always set up a batch
file to create a rendered HTML version of the XML on the fly using
XSL-J and Jade.  If you take a bit of time to learn e-lisp, you can
customise Emacs to do all of this from a drop-down menu (you can even
call it "Print Preview" if you want).

All the best,
