It sounds like you need to re-build your desktop after having assigned the .xml
(and .xsl) suffixes to BBedit in the Internet CP. (There are also droplets that
will batch set file type/creator for you).

BBEdit opens, views, edits and saves files with any line ending, no problem.
It also handles MacRoman (obviously :) and Unicode, but not Latin1

If it would help, I wrote a Java Application Droplet for MacOS.
It is very rough and ready, is wired up to use Saxon (not XT), is configured
with a StyleSheet via JBindery, you drop a folder of XML files on it and gives
output files a MacOS type and creator. The code is a mess, but it works. You
could adapt it to use XT.

hope this helps
let me know if you want a copy.
