execute .el file

I have a question regarding elisp. I have a file called xml.el (the standard part of emacs distribution). It has many function in it. I copied it to my D drive. Now I want to load it and execute it. I was able to load it w/ the load command but I can't execute it.

My guess is that it needs an input file too, but I'm not too sure because I don't quite know what the functions in xml.el file do. If you do know what this file does or what its function do, please share your knowledge as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
