What Peter said. If users are accustomed to "editing documents" a la
Word or other word processor, they'll find doing so with XML Spy an
exquisitely excruciating experience. :) This isn't a knock on XML Spy,
but it definitely is oriented toward data-centric (vs. document-centric)
XMetal's one drawback is price. There is, though, a 30-day trial version
that can take the sting out of learning if it's for you or not.
