XML spell check

Surely somebody has implemented this in at least one tool.

In a text editor, I come across a misspelled close tag like </xsl:stylsheet>. My editor highlights the line as an error, which is is, not matching the start tag and all. Why can’t it go the extra step and give me the same kind of interface as I get for misspelled words, which an easy option to repair the spelling? This seems like a much simpler problem than all the hairy cases around human-language spell check…

So, what tools already do this today? -m

    One example is the oXygen XML editor. If you put the cursor just to the right of the “</” and press “Ctrl+space”, it pops up the name of the open tag as the only possible closing tag name.
