I've tried psgml before but never managed to force myself to get used to
Emacs brain-deadness ;-). Instead, I use Vim for XML. There are some modes
you can download for it which give you a lot of basic features (including
all of the above), or it's fairly easy to add your own support for
auto-closing tags and tag folding (which is about all I want in terms of
XML-specific support). I've also seen a fair number of people doing XML in
Kate, if you want something GUI and gvim's not your thing....
