Great.  A tool to do the job?  I would think just your favorite text 
editor should do nicely, ie. NotePad++, UltraEdit, XML Editor.  Yes, 
Eclipse can do xml editing as well. 

Lately, I've been using xmlformat to reformat my xml docs to some 
configurable standard on other projects.  It works really well.  I've 
committed a sample configuration file in the doc directory a while back 
to get us going.  I don't know if this something that's of interest, but 
I was just thinking that it would be a lot easier to see people's svn 
changes without seeing tonnes of white space changes (tabs vs spaces, 
indents, carriage returns, etc), which would be really obvious if 
everyone is using a different text editor.

As for where to start ... I believe Till Adams was planning to write up 
a little readme or how to steps ... Till, have you had time to look into 
this further?
