Download the oXygen XML trial - it's Java so works x-platform.
(I imagine XML Spy and others can do the same job)

Pretty UIs normally require paying for :-)

By the by, libxslt (xsltproc) supports callbacks and can be used via
XML::LibXSLT. E.g. for the migration I've just done I needed to map some
values using large lookup tables, so I wrote a thin Perl script that
loaded the mapping table + xslt and applied it to the source XML. That
way, you can use XSLT to do the XML heavy-lifting and a scripting
language to do the complex value mapping.
