Viewing xml files

I have been playing around with the java version of nmap, DotNmap.  This app is very cool and it can output the scans into .xml files.  I want to view the .xml file in a browser.  I am not a scripter, how can I do this.  Here is the file.

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="nmap.xsl" type="text/xsl"?>
<!-- Nmap 4.20 scan initiated Fri Mar 23 09:24:12 2007 as: C:\Program Files\Nmap\nmap.exe -sS -PA -PE -vv -T 3 -oX C:\serverlistout.xml nmap server1 -->

You can simply view this in a browser as is
just make sure that the stylesheet is accessible:
the file nmap.xsl needs to be in the same server path as the xml file

I think that he needs to comment out that line in case to view pure xml file in a Browser.
<!-- ?xml-stylesheet href="nmap.xsl" type="text/xsl"?-->
