Michele -
We use both NoteTab and oXygen and I would recommend oXygen for training 
purposes.  For us NoteTab is great for someone already familiar with the 
contents of the EAD which needs some fine-tuning while oXygen is helpful 
for those working on fresh document; especially with all of the context 
help that it does.

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.
