This is an example how to read a plain text XML file in Mathematica, and display its content in a Mathematica Grid (table like).
I used an example XML I found on the net (ref ), which is a plain text file that contains some made up student information.
The first step is to download the above file to some folder, then create the following Mathematica code
The above now displays the symbolic XML
Now we read all the fields, using Cases
Now put them in a grid
This is the result
Finally, the output is converted to Latex in the fly, and compiled to HTML and pdf using tex4ht and pdflatex. Here is the result
This is the Mathematica code used to convert the table to Latex
That is all.
