Actually, XML Pro has an option called "Available Elements Constrained by
DTD" which will enforce validation during document construction by only
displaying child elements which are legal for the currently selected
parent. You can also enter a mode where you can build a "well-formed"
document, but XML Pro _does_ enforce validation *during* construction.
