Finally.. displaying XML documents in Safari

I really hated it when I needed to view a RDF/XML document in the browser, Safari in my particular case. All you can see is a white page with lots of unformatted strings on it. No structure was visible at all. The only way to get a slightly better look at the document, was to view the page’s source  code. And as you probably guessed or experienced yourself there is also no way of viewing it in a readable/formatted/colored way.
But thanks to Marc Liyanage’s XML View Plugin for Safari this nightmare is history. Just download the zip file from his homepage, unpack it and place the plugin in ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins. Restart Safari and and test it over here. Note that a configuration button at the lower bottom of the page appears. So, it’s even possible to edit the colors used.. via CSS and JavaScript respectively.
