I have an XML file I downloaded that is supposed to be API documentation for a program I downloaded. The problem is that I haven't the slightest idea how to read the file. I tried using Notepad, Google and IE, they all just show a lot of gibberish. What program can I use that formats it into human readible text?

As I know, xml file must open in a readable way. What is the extension of the xml file, aybe it's zipped.

No, it's not zipped -- the extension is xml. By "gibberish" I mean it's all readable but makes little or no sense to someone not versed in xml format.

@AD

What software/code are you using/running for API doc?

Usually xml files are readable, it's usually a list of items/names tags.
