XML Notepad

If you are one who is involved in working/creating/viewing a lot of XML files and XSLT transforms – you need something more than Notepad & IE. You need a professional XML Editor like Altova XMLSpy or Visual Studio 2005, but they can tend to be very expensive for simple XML tasks. Microsoft after 8 years has reintroduced a new version of its free XML Editor called “XML Notepad”. Give it a try.
