It should just "do it". :) <f3:link> should know that it should
manipulate the parent tag.

I use Eclipse for PHP and it also provides nice XML support. It can
autocomplete, syntax-highlight and auto-close open tags. Haven't looked
into how it supports namespaces, or how I can tell him about the phptal
namespace so that he currently doesn't auto-complete or warns about
spellings in those tags, but auto-closes them and warns me about invalid
XML in general, which is enough for me.

And it also has a very nice structured view of XML, which I use a lot
when dealing with understanding foreign XML-data.
