Raw XML editor for simple metadata edits

Idea created by kwobbe on Jul 26, 2011

    Would it be possible to include an XML stylesheet with an XML view of the metadata in ArcCatalog, including the ability to "Edit the raw metadata XML"  to make simple edits (like having the ability to easily delete the geoprocessing steps), once you are done capturing the process steps in the metadata?  The National Parks Service had a set of metadata tools for v9.2-9.3.1 that we incorporated into our workflow giving us the ability to do that, so we are looking for a replacement solution for that.

    Thanks for the opportunity to submit ideas for a wish list!
