    One of my computer science courses is using Altova's XMLSpy for working with XML/CSS/XSL/DTD etc. There is a free home edition of XMLSpy, but it is Windows only. I'm looking for a Mac OS X alternative (preferably free).

    Java-based XML Editor

    You might try Exchanger XML Editor. It's not free, but I think it's well worth the cost.

    I'm an expert in XML/XSLT/DTD, use them everyday in my job. I would say unless you are going to be using the XSLT profiling features of XML Spy, you don't really need it. A simple text editor will serve you just fine.

    http://www.morphon.com

    it's free now, does WYSIWIG XML Editing, CSS Editing, and much more.

    A bit old though, but it still does the job.

    If you need help running it, I may be able to help a wee bit...

    Free XML Editor suitable for Mac OS X

    Cladonia Limited, the makers of Exchanger XML Editor, now have a free xml editor for use in a non-commercial environment called Exchanger XML Lite. This can be downloaded without registration and starting the XML Editor for the first time you will be prompted with a license agreement that only allows the use of the Exchanger XML Lite edition in non-commercial environments.

    Please visit our website for more information http://www.freexmleditor.com

    Alternatively, if you require a commercial license, or would like to try out the Grid or XML Diff/Merge functionality, then download the Exchanger XML Professional edition from http://www.exchangerxml.com and register for a 30-day trial license.

    Thanks. I too have wanted to get a full-featured XML development/management tool that runs on my Powerbook, and XML Exchanger looks like a great package.
