  1. Apr 17, 2009 #1
    Our teacher gave us a practice test on a cd and all the questions are xml files. How do I read the information on them?

    Internet Explorer will do a reasonable job

    Often XML documents don't contain information on how to display them - you can always open them as text files though, by using something like Notepad on a Windows computer. Opening them as raw text files does sometimes make them difficult to read if they are heavily marked up though. For best results, you can also try opening it with whatever internet browser you use, and if it has appropriate style information, it should look nice.
