I use the Oxygen XML editor plugin in eclipse. It is not free but not 
expensive (and they have an academic license -- less expensive still). 
The license gets you something that runs standalone or in eclipse on 
several platforms. You can assign a resolver there (or standalone, which 
is slightly better). I have moved from XMLSpy (windows only) to Oxygen 
(mulitplatform) and have been very happy with it (not truly ecstatic, as 
with most software). You can validate with XML Schema or RNG (or the 
ancient DTD, if you must...). you can setup transformations with the 
aforementioned commons resolver. You can check it out for a month for 
free (I have no affiliation with them):
