I am trying out several sld editors recently (udig, qgis, geoext
styler).  While some are very powerful, each has its own issues.

QGIS - you can compose really nice layer symbolology using the "New
Symbology".  There is a plugin to export to SLD but you can only
export polygon and unique value symbology to SLD.
GeoExt styler - I'm using the opengeo shipped Styler, I can produce
SLDs  which are automatically added in the geoserver list of styles
but it is too limited. I. e. I cannot activate "follow line" in
Udig - probably the best sld editor.  I'm using udig 1.2.2 on a mac
but for some reason my rules are not persistently saved when I close a
udig session.

Are there other WYSIWYG options for creating SLD out there?  I
personally prefer QGIS as the main app for composing the layers and
then export the style either the project file (.qgs) or the saved
layer style (.qml)
