Hi folks/volks:

Does anyone recommend a fine xml editor for editing webtests? The webtest
documentation strongly recommends an intelligent editor. 

I'm using intellij's idea and emacs. The problem is when editing individual
teststeps (i.e. later included as entities), since the file doesn't have a
dtd and isn't valid xml, the 'auto complete' features of the editor don't
work.

any recommendations?  any emacs modes people like for webtest xml editing?

e.g. editing a file that only has this in it:

<invoke  stepid="Contact Us "
  url="/feedback/contactus.jsp" />
  
 <verifytitle stepid="Contact Us"
    text="${contactus.ok.title}"
    regex="true" />
    
 <setinputfield
   stepid="Set Contact Us Input"
   name="comment"
   value="Great Site!!! (Contacted via Automatic Testing)" />
    
 <clickbutton stepid="Click Contact us"
     name="submit"  />
   
 <verifytitle stepid="Contact Us Verify Title after contacting"
    text="${contactus.after.ok.title}"
    regex="true" />

thanks,

bill milbratz
