    Viewing XML files

    I created a site report using Dreamweaver MX trial version. The report is save as a file with .xml extension.

    When i view it in IE6.0, I see the following:

    <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes" ?>

    <mm_report>
    <mm_reportname> ResultsReport.xml</mm_reportname>
    <mm_reportdate>06/11/02 21:04:13</mm_reportdate>
    <mm_reportlocation>C:\\Documents and Settings\Myname\My Documents\My Webs\Foldername\</mm_reportlocation>
    <mm_reportitem>

    .....
    ....[lots of code here]
    ....
    ....
    </mm_reportitem>
    </mm_report>
    The <mm_reportitem> items are collapsable, just like the message on this forum [notice the small negative
    signs to the left of the postdate? ]

    Is it supposed to be like that or is there a "NICER" way to view it. do i need a server side language to view it [like php]?

    Someone enlighten me on this situation. Thanks.

    XSL or CSS

    You can format XML using XSL or CSS to name two methods.
