Some editors can use it, yes. Not all.

And what happens when you start to edit an xml file that isn't pretty 
printed Henri? Mikes issues of the 'single line' XML file.

That seems to be a case of covering some percentage, just as assuming
all editors can highlight an xpath location in a file only covers
some percentage.

I've tried to explain the simplicity of the work DC did at
I.e. using the xpath location as a way of 'pointing' to a location in
the source XML file?
That way the edit/parse/view errors is pretty easy using a browser
alongside the editor.

And it works for any XML file too.
