Yes, it is. It's called Emacs PSGML mode.
I use the following settings:
; psgml mode
(autoload 'sgml-mode "psgml" "Major mode to edit SGML files." t)
(autoload 'xml-mode "psgml" "Major mode to edit XML files." t)
(setq sgml-catalog-files '("/usr/pkg/share/sgml/catalog"
(append '(("\\.html?$" . sgml-mode)
("\\.sgml?$" . sgml-mode)
("\\.xml$" . xml-mode)
("\\.xsl$" . xml-mode))
(setq sgml-indent-data t)
(setq sgml-balanced-tag-edit t)
(setq sgml-auto-activate-dtd nil)
(set-face-foreground 'sgml-comment-face "FireBrick")
(set-face-foreground 'sgml-start-tag-face "SlateBlue")
(set-face-foreground 'sgml-end-tag-face "SlateBlue")
(set-face-background 'sgml-entity-face "SlateBlue")
(set-face-foreground 'sgml-entity-face "Red")
(set-face-foreground 'sgml-doctype-face "FireBrick")
(setq sgml-set-face t) ; without this, all SGML text is in same color
'((comment . sgml-comment-face)
(start-tag . sgml-start-tag-face)
(end-tag . sgml-end-tag-face)
(doctype . sgml-doctype-face)
(entity . sgml-entity-face)))

http://www.lysator.liu.se/projects/about_psgml.html :) there are pkgsrc
pkgs too. :)
