Huh, I bring it up in Moz 1.2.1 (mac os x) and I can edit but I think 
something is missing, there's no indication of a schema helping me to 
figure out what to do.

I considered doing that (using javascript/DOM) but the DOM 
implementations are different in IE and in Moz. Also, I want to support 
any kind of client, potentially including mobile users, so I'm doing it 
with server side technology (AxKit, an XML pipelining toolkit)
