I have little experience with XML, but I received a report in XML format (no stylesheet), I wondered if there's anyway to convert it into a human readable table/format, without the style sheet. All I can do is open it in notepad or explorer but its very hard to digest the content, I wondered if theres anyway to convert it without XSL to a  more presentable format?

Even without a stylesheet you can still view the file in a browser. It may be slightly more readable than notepad.

IF you have Microsoft Excel available, you can open the XML File in Excel.

Depending upon the complexity of the XML, Excel will automatically reformat the data into a easy to read table.

When you first open the file you will get a pop up message box.  the "As an XML Table" radio button will will be selected by default, just click ok to continue.
