Show XML Data as text

Hello,
I want to show database text in my website but this text is a XML file structure. The browser shows this text as part of html.
How I can show this string as real text? So also <> nodes will shown as text?

You need replace the characters <, > and & with entities, like: &lt; &gt; and &amp;

you need to encode the XML content so that it can be displayed as "real text".

This looks like a DUP question of:

Another way rather than encoding is to preserve the XML formatting in a TEXTAREA INPUT

<textarea rows="20" cols="40" style="border:none;">
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<catalog>
    <cd>
        <title>Empire Burlesque</title>
        <artist>Bob Dylan</artist>
        <country>USA</country>
        <country>Columbia</country>
        <price>10.90</price>
        <year>1985</year>
    </cd>
</catalog>
</textarea>
