I sent a lengthy list of editors that are on the market for XML documentation. Furthermore, I sent a link to the newest version of XMetaL, released a few months ago, which allows you to format, write, and publish documents in every format, *all from one tool*. XML has been around for *9* years. It isn't new by any stretch of the imagination.

These tools can only become clear market leaders as people use them. Every writer is a potential tester for these tools. You can't just go with a sure thing every time--you have to take risks sometimes and try something new.
