[sword-devel] Insidious mismatched tag errors: recommendations

There are a number of pieces of software out there that will
pretty-print the XML for you, with indenting and whatnot. Overly
indented for what you would want in production but decent for
debugging mismatching nesting and the like.

For example, 'xmllint --format' will properly indent the file, etc. I
don't know how it will handle poorly formed XML.

GUI editors can do wonders as well. On Windows I use Notepad++ and
manually set it to display XML. gEdit and Geany - I believe - both
support similar display worlds. And there are some plugins for Eclipse
that might handle what you need as well.
