Comments: nXML mode: a short how to


Even before I had decided to use Emacs as my default editor I had read about nXML mode, an add-on for GNU Emacs which turns it into a powerful XML editor with continuous validation and completion. Since I use XML files to store allmost all the content on this web site - using a Perl program to generate the actual HTML files - I decided to give this mode a try, instead of using Exchanger XML Lite on Ubuntu. The latter had been my XML editor of choice for quite some time on Windows XP Professional. But I missed several features, like for example spell checking and macro recording.
