Do you use the sgml-markup-faces variable?  Here's how I set it:

(setq-default sgml-markup-faces
 '((comment . sgml-comment-face)
   (doctype . sgml-doctype-face)
   (end-tag . sgml-end-tag-face)
   (entity . sgml-entity-face)
   (ignored . sgml-ignored-face)
   (ms-end . sgml-ms-end-face)
   (ms-start . sgml-ms-start-face)
   (pi . sgml-pi-face)
   (sgml . sgml-sgml-face)
   (short-ref . sgml-short-ref-face)
   (start-tag . sgml-start-tag-face)))

This works with XML as well as SGML, at least under Unix: of course,
you have to create the individual faces.  If anyone is interested in
the complete code (including the face definitions), I'll be happy to
e-mail privately.

All the best,
