The Eclipse IDE
Eclipse is an open source development platform that can be configured to support a number of different activities, including XML and schema development. There is one flavor of eclipse that includes an XML- and schema-aware editor. If you've never used an XML-aware editor before, this is a cheap way to try one out - but don't expect a lot of bells and whistles.
