XXE from is very good.  It has a stylesheet
(graphical) and XML node modes.  There is a "Forrest doc" plugin to make
editing forrest docs easier in its stylesheet mode. That plugin is
included in the scratchpad directory in forrest 0.6 (see the readme.txt, I
haven't done real docs for it yet), and in the tools directory in 0.7-dev.
