How to show XML in browser?

Is there possible way to run XML like as HTML? Suppose, I have following code.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<breakfast_menu>
<food>
    <name>Belgian Waffles</name>
    <price>$5.95</price>
    <description>
   Two of our famous Belgian Waffles with plenty of real maple syrup

Now, I want to see it in browser. I don't want to use C# or any other language with it. I only wants to use XML. I had visited the link..

Like : file:///home/name/xml/index.xml

Then I got the message

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below. output

That's not what I expected. I wanted to show list of foods rather than code.

I was searching further why it's not working properly. Then I created a CSS file. Linked that CSS to XML using the following command.

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="test.css"?>

Then when I executed it then I could see the design. It was the output :

If you make changes to CSS then you can show it the way you want.

XSL and XSLT is a good way to provide a theme or stylesheet to XML files including RSS and Atom feeds. By the way Atom is so much better than RSS and RSS as a feed standard sucks.

I think there was XSL beforehand but it got replaced with XSLT to provide more features. W3Schools removed their XSL tutorials but there's an archive here. For now they have XSLT tutorials.

If you're at a loss, you can find a good XSL tutorial here in a practical manner that provides an example solution, rather than technical.
