    I am entering in XML into a text area for some manipulation etc.

    I do not want to enable the "next" button until I can validate that XML has been entered.

    1. What is the best event to hit to change the button from disabled to enabled when text is entered?
    2. What is the best way to check that it is true XML that is entered?

    You will have to work in the jQuery .change() event of your text box:

    $("#yourTextBox").change(function () {

    For validation XML with XSD you will have to create your own logic, which I think is not difficult at all. Check this tutorial for it:
