If you need to convert an XML file to a sas dataset, you can do this by
writing a few rather complex data steps very specific to the input
file. However, before attempting this I reccomend asking the creater
of the data to send data in a more sas friendly format. However, in
some circumstances, the XML libname statement may work for you. You
can read about this on the sas web site.
The following is a link to the sas XML resource page.
If you have created an XML document, you may need to create a xhtml
style sheet to display it in a human readable format. However,
creating html style sheets is far from my area of expertese. This will
require some research for you.
