One word: Homesite. Makes a damn good syntax highlighting XML editor
too. And with IE5 installed it's a quick click on the Browse button and you
see your XML+CSS in all it's glory.
For Joshua's information, he may be (or may not be) interested in

built using XUL - it's a very cool technology. However it doesn't go as far
as to lower the scripting language to being XML itself - I think that's
crazy, but each to his own.
