Yes, none of the website stylesheets are namespaced, i.e. they
process content in the null|default namespace.

I've tried to avoid it, editors seem to be such a personal
preference; all you can do is list them and report good
points bad points. Chances are that what I think are good
(features) others won't like, so IMHO it's just not worth it.

Google for xml editors - try them and take your pick.
Oxygen is the only other editor I've come away thinking
good things about.
