I am using EditTime at the moment: it supports Unicode document character set
and ENR extended naming rules SGML declaration.  It is not  officially XML, 
but you can type in /> for EMPTY elements, so you can create XML documents. 

I don't know whether it allows &#x  hexadecimal numeric character references,
but it certainly supports SPREAD-style &U hexadeclimal entity references, so 
it can be trivially converted to XML.
They seem to have Japanese & Chinese versions available, and also support the 
European scripts.
