Will there ever be a WYSIWYG editor for XML?

Will there ever be a WYSIWYG editor for XML?
Yes and no. Yes, there will be WYSIWYG editors that save their documents in XML. OpenIOffice is one such Word Processor. As stylesheet technologies advance, I think WYSIWYG renderings of XML within editors will get better but I doubt that it can ever get to the same degree of WYSIWYG-ness as word processing technology. XML allows you to separate your content from your presentation and this separation comes at the cost of true WYSIWYG.
