Any XML tool discussed in the Effective XML?

I just would like to know whether any XML tools that the book discusses or recommends us to use? Since tools nowadays are very smart in dealing with the XML contents, I do hope that the book might mention one in its content...
But since tool is not a must in dealing with XML, the book might not discuss about them... Anyone who know details about XML, he/she won't find it difficult to use a tool...

Tools are useful when it come to XML schmea writing. It is easier to use XMLSpy to write XML schema rather than type .

Yeah, Pradeep, I have ever tried to use XMLSpy, Trial Version... It's cool... But I have no chance to use the full version...
Anyway, thanks for your advice...

Effective XML does not really recommend specific tools, though it does suggest a few principles you might want to follow in choosing among available tools. Personally I find most of the tools to create far more trouble and expense than they alleviate. For instance, I've yet to find an XML editor that is superior to plain text editors like JEdit and BBEdit.
