I am intending to role out Arbortext Epic LE to a group of journalists and
editors. It's cheap and simple, but the interface is still quite intuitive:
tab to the next element, return gives a context menu of tags that can be
used in that context.

The only problem I have with any of these editors is that none of them
support XSLT or even standard CSS for the styling, some have preview modes;
I'm thinking of XMetal, but I believe you are tied into MSXML then (urgh).
Epic uses FOSI for styling.

 Subject: XML Editor recommendation?
 Dear all,
 We have a client which is a small group of journalists wishing 
 to create XML
 content.  They are not used to using mark-up languages and 
 they currently
 use MS Word for their documents.  They need a user-friendly editor that
 takes the hard work our of creating XML files.
 The editor doesn't have to be free, but it does have to be aimed at the
 general population (not programmers!).
 Something like MS XMLNotepad doesn't cut it.
 I'm sure some of you will have been in a similar situation.  
 If so, would
 you mind sharing your recommendation?
