When I worked with the evaluation copy of XMLSpy I did not notice an
API for custom forms, but perhaps I missed it. I will take another look.
That would be very much what I am looking for. And if they do provide
UI APIs, that should be of interest to you, since as far as I can tell
XMLSpy is tracking XML Schema.
