Dear Scott,

As far as I know most of the tools that work with XML Schemas are able
to provide a list of errors, not only the first one so basically any
choice your colleague makes should solve his/her problem.

It is always useful however to get more opinions on schema validation so
support for multiple schema processors is a plus. Both oXygen XML Editor
and Stylus Studio provide support for multiple schema processors
although it is possible to find that also in other tools.

For oXygen (this is developed by my company) the list of supported XML
Schema engines that can be used for validation include:
- Xerces (default)
- Saxon SA (you can use it also to experiment with XML Schema 1.1)
- MSXML 4.0
and, if you install them, also:

oXygen provides also links to the XML Schema specification part related
with each error for the errors reported by Xerces.

Best Regards,
George Cristian Bina
