Cool Emacs Modes?

Answering my own question: Yes!  PSGML is a very cool emacs mode for
editing XML documents.

But I have a question about one of the "trouble spots" PSGML reported in my
XML doc:

Foo end-tag implied by Bar start-tag; not minimizable

It appears on a line which reads:

  <Bip a="a">v</Bip>
  <Bar><Bax a="a">w</Bax></Bar></Foo>

Eh?  Anybody know what that error means?  It looks like maybe an SGML thing
which is leaking into XML-mode perhaps?

Oh, and is there any way to tell C-c C-e to *not* insert all the default
values for the attributes?
