Peter and Martin have described the features of CTE and its lack of XML
(apart from the TEI export, about which they seem to be somewhat coy).
It might be possible to use CTE as a data-entry interface, convert to
TEI, and then edit the result into usable form, but I suspect that this
would take more time and effort than doing the job in TEI to start with.
At the risk of being shot at dawn for beating this drum (or mixing this
metaphor) again, Emacs will also edit XML, including TEI, either using a
W3C schema with nxml (markup editing features designed for "data" XML)
or a DTD using psgml-mode (markup editing features designed for
"document" XML, probably closer to what you need); it is open source and
you do not have to pay for it, and it runs identically on all platforms.
With xsl-mode you can write and execute XSLT. You do, however, have to
learn how it works, which sometimes upsets people.
