True.  Unless they ask for that view which 
sometimes is useful when debugging.  Weirdly, 
I've found that after awhile, some want to 
see the markup and some begin to work in it 
exclusively.  Consider how some editors 
have to make assumptions about directories, 
stuff a lot of indirection in, and then if 
you need to clone code or chase it, it is 
painful.  So, a room with a view is my 
choice.  But you are right, hide the garbage 
collection. :-)

Imho, the simplest XML tools will not appear to be XML tools at all. No
reason the user should see the XML unless they want to, it's like asking a
writer to look at the bits that make up a word processing document. They
don't care, rightly so. Dave
