I'm going to be teaching a one-day workshop on EAD encoding this summer and am debating with myself whether it's better to use a full-featured XML editor like oXygen, or go with something like NoteTab Pro or Notepad++ that just provides some general (mostly visual) XML assistance. I've used Notepad++ in the past with students in our LIS classes with pretty good success. I can think of fairly obvious pros and cons for both approaches. I'd appreciate your thoughts, particularly from anyone who has taught similar workshops.
