psgml is one of the best whatever-ML editor for Emacs I've seen so far (don't
know about xxml.el though). psgml works based on the SGML DTD and hence
can edit and "understands" any XML or SGML subset for which you have the
correct files.

It also knows, where certain tags are allowed, where they have no sense,
which options each tag can have. And you are certain that your code will be
standard since the HTML DTDs are directly available from the W3C and the IETF.

The wysisyg HTML editors (Scream is a nearly wysiwyg free software) generally
produce bad code. Not to mention their ability to completely screw whatever
you might customize in your code.
