I'll second the Subversion recommendation. TortoiseSVN is a nice Windows
shell GUI for managing files if you stick with XMetaL.
Also if you can "mount" the remote server space locally with something
like FUSE/SSFHS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_in_Userspace
Then you're editing software can more or less treat them as local files.
FTP could work too.

Subject: XML editing on a network
Hello EAD gurus,
As part of our ongoing work with the Carpenter Collection and its EAD
finding aid, our group needs to access and edit some ancillary XML
files. These files will be held on a server at the University of
Aberdeen but need to be accessed and modified by members of our team in
London, Sheffield, Manchester and Aberdeen.
Up to this point we've used XMetaL, but in this context it downloads a
copy of the file and works with that but does not allow you to save it
back on the server.
Can anyone recommend an online XML editor or other means by which users
in various places could edit a single file (one at a time, of course).
