I suppose I need to clarify my problem.  My job is to create the strings in the XML file and I need a process or tool that is better than copying and pasting.

It sounds like Raymond works directly in Axure, used for prototyping.
Axure simplifies HTML and JavaScript creation, but does not support a
direct to XML workflow. At least the version I played with didn't.
