We have 50+ XMetal authors that would find it useful to have an additional view to view the Attributes tags inline. Think of this as a Tags + View or Attributes Tags view that would not require us to look at the raw XML or have to pick our way through the Attribute inspector.
You can reach me at [email protected] to discuss further.Derek Read November 18, 2011 at 7:47 pm

This can be done by making modifications to the CSS files in your customization. However, this probably needs to be carefully designed so that you do overwhelm your authors with too much information. See: http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php/topic,925.0.html
An alternative (in case you are not aware) is to hover over the tags of an element. When you do this XMetaL will show you the values for attributes that have values.LeeHart December 16, 2011 at 9:29 pm

Related to this, here's a CSS I use for a lot of random XML files. It indents all elements and shows all attributes. It's rarely the best CSS but it's a usable view.
prefix-format: “[ %attribute-list; ] “;

With a little bit of additional code you could also switch your regular CSS out for this one or something similar with the click of a button or menu item. There is an example of this in the DocBook demo: Help > Samples > * (DocBook)
