For the last two years there has been a major mode for Emacs that I just found. There has long been an XML mode which didn't interest me. This is nXML, or the new XML mode.

How about direct insertion of unicode entities? There's the usual syntax hi-liting and tag insertion/completion.

Here's O'Reilly's XML Hacks chapter about nXML mode.

It's available as a Debian .deb package, RPM and a .tar.gz.
