can anyone help me to convert an xml file to text file
Legor 8-Sep-11 7:25am    
An XML is a text file. But then again what do you mean by a text file? Maybe a file that contains human readable text? In that case an XML file is a text file after all! Problem solved

But when i opened it it showing all the content in same line instead of displaying in tag vice. It is not understandable to me.
Can you tell in detail about how to do this ?

It really depends on the editor your opening it with. Try to open with a browser for example and it will get displayed completely different than with a notepad.

Just change the extension from .xml to .txt, and there you have it.

BTW, a XML file is already plain text.
