There is a split tag function in Oxygen. I'm on my iPhone right now and don't have oxygen to check, but it is something like Ctrl-Alt-X or Ctrl-Alt-D.
I seem to recall that the keystroke has changed in recent versions, so it may be something different. You can find the function somewhere in the menu, however. I'll send the details when I'm at my desk tomorrow.

This is handy when you're entering several paragraphs, or when you want a new <subject> element, etc. Also in this view, if I click on the opening tag, it automatically selects the entire element and all its contents. There are a few other things that are pretty easy to do in this view, in which the elements are treated as indivisible units.

So far as I can discover, Oxygen appears to always treat all the tags as just text strings -- it allows me to add a return in the middle of an element name, for example, and selecting an entire element requires a right-click > menu choice rather than a single click on the opening tag. (Basically it's analogous to XMetaL's "Plain Text" view.)
