XMLmind XML Editor is available in two editions: Standard Edition and Professional Edition. Standard Edition is free of charge but has fewer features than Professional Edition.

Here are some key features of "XMLmind XML Editor":
Supports the DTD, W3C XML Schema, RELAX NG schemas, XML namespace, XSLT, XPath, XInclude, XML catalog standards.
Editing commands are DTD/schema aware. This makes creating invalid documents almost impossible.
Word processor-like views are configured using cascading style sheets (CSS2).
When a CSS style sheet is not available for a document, a fully editable tree view is used instead of the word processor-like view.
Multiple, synchronized, views can be used to edit the same document.
Standard controls such as buttons, check boxes, combo boxes, text fields, etc, can be embedded in the word processor-like view. With this feature, XXE can be used to edit XML data, XML documents or a mix of both content types.
Has an easy to use and yet extremely powerful integrated spreadsheet engine.
Can transform the document being edited using a built-in XSLT engine and FO processor plug-ins.
Supports many image formats (GIF, JPEG, PNG, SVG, TIFF, BMP, EPS, PDF, etc) through the use of image toolkit plug-ins.
