One such tool is XML Notepad 2007, available as a free download from the Downloads page of the Microsoft web site, at the following link.

Figure 15.1 shows the TreeView tab of the XML Notepad editor, with the List Fields XML code. This view shows each attribute on a separate line of the tree in the left pane, with its value displayed in the right pane.

The XML Notepad 2007 utility was updated towards the end of the beta of Office 2007/Windows Vista, and it worked well at that time. Unfortunately, in the release version of Vista, it has a curious problem: it will only run minimized or maximized, not restored. Hopefully this glitch will clear up with a patch some time soon. Until that time, when you run this utility, it will appear minimized; right-click its taskbar icon and select Maximize to open it full-screen.
