XML Spy is not free, but as 30 day evaluation is available. The IE plugins
can be found at MSDN and are free (link most likely wrapped):

Maybe a good thing to do: When patches are submitted, the author should tell
if the resulting doc was validated. If he didn't or can't for some reason,
somebody will have to "review" (validate) the patch before commiting. (Ala
translations, bur we asume that when the author says he validated, he did)
