   The systems you're looking for started out life in the SGML world, but
should be well XML-enabled by now. The major players in this area that I
know of (aside from Poet) are:

 - Information Manager from Texcel (http://www.texcel.no), recently
purchased by Interleaf (http://www.interleaf.com) and being incorporated
into Bladerunner.

 - Astoria from Chrystal (http://www.chrystal.com), a subsidiary of Xerox

 - Parlance Document Manager from Xyvision (http://www.xyvision.com)

They should all incude validating parsers and provide markup-aware
checkin/checkout, versioning, sometimes differencing, etc. But be warned,
none of them are cheap. Related products are also available from Inso -
DynaWeb/DynaBase (http://www.inso.com), ObjectDesign - eXcelon
(http://www.odi.com) and Bluestone Software - XML Server
(http://www.bluestone.com). Hope that helps.
