Hi Dj and thanks for the thanks! :)

Since I've found that I am not the only one that is using vim (thank god)
for editing, I decided to clean up an old xml vim script and to publish
it [1].

Please give it a try, as I just added a couple of functions and I don't
have test it thoroughly as I would like to, although the tag 
auto-completion seems to work the way I want it.

I'm not really sure if you are familiar with vim scripting, so feel free
to ask me about the functions or any settings you don't understand.
If you have any comments/fixes or any other additions, please don't 
hesitate (that goes for everyone of course -- cc'ing to -dev) to reply.

In normal mode just hit \h for a quick help.
