I like it for the flexibility of being able to 
use CSS, integrate other components, use MSXML 
(I like MSXML) and edit in a WYSIWYG environment. 
The tutorials are good, the examples are good, 
and they made good choices for which DTDs to 
support coming out.

Part of choosing a tool is choosing a vendor.  
Without confidence in the vendor, it is hard 
to recommend a product because who knows where 
some of today's vendors will be next week.  
A history of commitment to markup and to the 
markup community is a rare attribute in our 
young-looking but not so young in fact market. 

XMetal reflects a design from a team that 
is very experienced in markup editors,  
has the pedigree and makes the right tradeoffs  
When one knows where the stumps are, it is easier 
to walk on water.

Actually, XMetaL uses CSS internally and doesn't rely on MSXML.  However,
when you go to 'Preview' mode (viewing the document in IE), IE uses
MSXML.  One of the cool things that I like about XMetaL is that
you can use CSS internally within XMetaL and use XSLT for previewing
in IE.
