I find xmlspec very useful, especially when used inside Altova XML Spy. 
(Altova provides a free license to W3C members for spec work)
In XML spy you can make changes in the source tab, and immediately see 
the results in the browser tab - there is no need to run a makefile.  
XMLSpy transparently runs the xmlspec.xsl when you change from the 
source tab to browser tab. XMLSpy also continuously validates your xml 
against the schema as you type.

Running the makefile produces slightly different html, apart from the 
xmlspec.xsl, it also runs a fix-style.xsl, which does slight fix ups. I 
run this makefile at the end just before checking in. If we can combine 
this xmlspec.xsl with fix-style.xsl, we can take out this makefile
