My favourite editor is Notepad++. It loads quickly, has a small memory foot print, and is easily customizable.
It's not as powerful as Oxygen etc... but for learning XSLT I think it is a good editor because it forces you to type things out.
It has an XML plug in tool that has many nice features. (You need to download the ext-tools.zip and put those files in a folder that is in your %PATH% environment variable. Then as with other plugins, you need to add the XMLTools.dll to the plugin folder.)
(I believe Eclipse has some free plugins with XML editing support and some support for generating xsd schemas. But I tend to use notepad++ for all of my editing needs.)
Microsoft's XMLNotepad 2007 is also interesting... but I still prefer notepad++.

I use XMLSpy, Oxygen and Stylus Studio all the time but my students sometimes ask me if I can recommend an all free XML Editor to use at home or if their company can't be persuaded to invest in one.
I'm looking for a dedicated XML editor like the ones mentioned, good at making xsd-schemas and XSLT but all free not just for an evaluation period?
It is easy to google and start downloading, but too often the downloads are less serious than I can accept, they can only do dtd or they are only free for a period, etc.
So some hints in the right direction woud be appreciated to save me a lot of time.
