Editing XML

Every now and then, I have to edit XML files in z/Linux servers, using the vm editor. While it is sorta difficult to remember all the commands and even difficult to actually train others to use, I am wondering if anyone knows of a better way to access these XML files outside of the z/Linux box and edit XMLs in a Windows-like GUI. Any ideas ??

Yes, I access the server via PuTTY session or sometimes via the Tectia Client and edit the XMLs directly on the servers. So tell me more about this UltraEditor.. is it a GUI?
