An Excellent XML Editor for Ubuntu: XML Copy Editor!

When it comes to editing XML files under Ubuntu we can of course use the Gedit text editor. But if you deal with a lot of XML codes, then Gedit is not the kind of the app that's gonna fully satisfy you. Although we cannot blame Gedit since it's primary role is to act as a text editor but for the serious coders, it's just not enough.

In that case if you're looking for a dedicated, fully featured and powerful XML editor that can be used in Ubuntu Linux, then you should try the award winning utility called XML Copy Editor.

Main features...

*. Syntax highlighting.

*. Check for spellings and styles.

*. Show/Hide attributes.

*. Insert: Symbols, elements, entity, etc.

*. Wrap words, folding.

*. Enable/Disable element pane.

*. Find and replace.

*. Excellent dedicated "XML" printing (pretty-print): With, wrapped long lines and highlighted codes, etc.

*. Export the XML files to PDF.

*. Word count and enter commands.

*. Check for well-formedness.

*. Validation DTD, XML Schema, Relax NG, Schematron, etc... are just a few of its main features to mention.

You can install XML Copy Editor in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, 11.10, 10.10 and 10.04 by using the below command.
sudo apt-get install xmlcopyeditor
That should do it.
