On a basic level, they are just text files, and all your normal ways of reading text files apply (vi, emacs, more, less, page, etc).

Now if you are looking for more or something different, can you please clarify what it is you would like to see or do?

To read an .XML file and have it actually be readable, you need the matching style sheet.

I'm going to lurk here, because I want to know how to do this also.....

Would the sc program help? I haven't used it ever but you could test it.
If you run X you could put VNC server on your server and contact that to use GUI tools.

Well, if you know what prog is producing the XML (and tell us), you'd just need to get the DTD (defines the XML layout), but as mentioned, ultimately it's just plain text, looks vaguely like HTML fyi.
