I'm particularly fond of XML Spy. It's an excellent tool for developing XML
Schema and instance documents, and provides some convenient support for
text-based xml and xsl editing (but "grid mode" takes some getting used to).
Once it's set up with your choice of XSL processor, it performs one-touch
xsl transformation and presentation within the IDE. So, the development
cycle is code-test-adjust-test, all within the same IDE. Pretty much how
you'd expect an IDE to work. 

My one gripe is that it's complicated to get XML Spy to play well with
java-based xsl transformers under windows, especially when you're operating
on multiple drives. 

Eventually, we'll see more WYSIWYG editors (like xslComposer from
Whitehill), and we won't be asking for IDEs but rather for XSL-generating
document editors.

Subject:	[xsl] Any Recommended XSL integrated development


    Im evaluating a range of xsl development environments. I currently
use a combination of VIM an XT. Im considering products including
cooktop, xmlspy, whitehill xsl composer, activestate komodo and emacs
plugins. Any opinions on these or other XSL IDE's preferably with
debugging features?
Also can anyone point me to an MSXML 3.0 command line utility that
allows me to run xsl and
xml using msxml without having to use a third party IDE environment?


:) Ben
