Im using xxe instead XMLSpy. Theres is a free standard edition at Its written in Java and I looove it.

Heres how to write document1.1 DTD in wysiwyg mode:

1. install editor.

2. unzip at xxe/config
thats a draft of a web Im doing, hope it's not going down by the time
you read this

3. add this text to catalog.xml (between <catalog></catalog> tags)

4. It's done.

Hmm..maybe I should add support for others DTDs from Forrest.
