UI for XML Document

I would like to develop a plugin that provides a UI for a custom XML format we use.  It would be on a separate tab (like IDEA already does for web.xml).  Looking through the plugin development documentation, I haven't seen any information on this (although I'm not even sure what term IDEA would use for these things).  Could someone point me in the right direction? Any documentation, or even a term to search on would be helpful.

For providing a separate editor tab you need to implement your own FileEditorProvider. This can replace the default one or appear as a separate editor tab at the bottom of main editor, depending on its implementation. Search the forums for FileEditorProvider, you will certainly find something.
