I would love to see a really handy XML editing mode. I don't claim it

seems quite sparse, there are no contextual pop-up menus (that I have
noticed), and the nXML Info manual (which I have only skimmed) seems also
quite skimpy. In short, where's the beef? ;-)

in Lisp. Or, better, double-click to pick up a complete tag and triple-click
to pick up the complete element. Currently, as soon as there is any
whitespace (e.g. there is an attribute), the complete tag is not selected.
Double-click, then right-click to extend to the next element boundary (or
something more significant than just a word). Other mouse selection
possibilities could also be useful. The mouse now seems almost useless for

There are no mouse bindings, but the needed functions are there in nXml
