Emacs major mode for editing SGML and XML documents.

PSGML is an Emacs major mode for editing SGML and XML documents. Its features include:

  • Indentation according to element nesting depth and identification of structural errors (but it is not a validating SGML parser).
  • Menus and commands for inserting tags with only the contextually valid tags.
  • Attribute values can be edited in a separate window with information about types and defaults.
  • Structure based editing including movement and killing.
  • Commands for folding editing.

PSGML is maintained as part of the GNU Emacs Lisp Package Archive.


To install this package, run in Emacs:

M-x package-install RET psgml RET
