I can think of two ways to do this. The first is
(probably not desirable) to walk the user through a
series of steps and generate the appropriate code in
the end. The second is to let the user define a
freeform text and use either simplexml_load_string()
or something similar to that to check well-formedness
of the string. As a precaution, we could add a link
called "Try Me First" or something similar that would
launch the edit page in a separate target window, and
let the user discover if it wouldn't work--sort of
like the preview function, but on a separate window.
You think that will work?
