XML launches xml editor (against my wishes)

    I frequently need to link to raw XML data to examine its structure. Recently
    whenever I do this rather than rendering the xml in the browser it is being
    routed to my xml editor application which is OK but not ralways what I want.

    I suspect I've installed (or uninstalled) something that has changed some
    settings somewhere in the system, but I'm not sure how to re-set so that IE
    will render tyhe xml data by default.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Hi Phil,

    Check your setting for Internet Options>Security Settings tab - "Open files
    based on content, not file extension"

    There was a previous post about this and google map files... some posted xml
    files were missing the content tags... tich, tich.

    Thanks for the suggestion. But I'm afraid it didn't work. That setting is
    enabled. I've tried disabling too but with no success.
