<PRE> works still in HTML5

Just make sure your DOCTYPE is HTML and your XML is encoded e.g > is &gt;
< is &lt;

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Title of the document</title>
</head>
<body>
The content of the document......

<pre>
&lt;XML&gt;
&lt;/XML&gt;
</pre>

</body>
</html>

A better way 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>
