True, but I think you can then do sgml-fold-subelement (C-c C-f C-s) to
fold up all the child elements.

Vim 6.1 does folding for XML. See ':help folding' or just open up an XML
file with it and try typing 'zr' and 'zm' a few times to see how it

I don't think Vim's XML folding is as XML-aware as that in Emacs, but
still it seems to work pretty well.
