Stefano Mazzochi from the Simile Team [1] has recently announced [2]  
Gadget.

- http://simile.mit.edu/gadget/

Gadget is an XML "inspector" and is most useful in situations like:

* data understanding and exploration
* data migration/transformation
* data cleanup
* data complexity evaluation
* schema adherence understanding
* schema emergence

For a live demo of Gadget running on a few Gigabytes of XML harvested
from various repositories see

- http://simile.mit.edu/gadget/live/

In particular to this group, the Gadget view over Gene Ontology is  
interesting

Stefano had been given the task of transforming several hundred Mb of  
XML into RDF - in the course of addressing this task he found out  
(the hard way!) that with that amount of data things start to break  
down and you need radically different approaches to view and see  
emergent patterns in data. This is particularly important when you  
want to make explicit (via RDF) the implicit semantics that are  
represented in an XML collection.

As several HCLSIG tasks are related to transforming localized  
collections of XML into RDF you may find this tool useful.
