Display XML documents properly

Is there a way of viewing the structure of XML documents? 

When opening an XML file in Chrome I can see the structure clearly like this: http://screencast.com/t/8SGsOvtG 

In Textastic, it just shows one block of text which is not useful if you want to make edits! See: http://screencast.com/t/H392U9eZV9M


Textastic is a text editor, not a visual XML editor. You can use an XML formatter/pretty printer like this: http://xmlprettyprint.com and paste the result into Textastic to make the file more readable.

Thanks Alexander. I see what you mean and thanks for the link to http://xmlprettyprint.com.


Hi Alexander, I agree this is not visual XML editor, but the option to see nicely formatted XML content was one of the drivers for me to buy your product and honestly I am bit disappointed :(

I will really appreciate if you could implement this option in of the future releases.
