storing XML as is in Sybase

I want to store XML in the database(without parsing & stroring each field store as it is) and want to display in HTML.
I feel that it could be stored as BLOB or in a file.

Can anyone suggest me the best approaches or practices for this?

While a lot depends on how big your xml file is going to be,
it can be saved as a BLOB.
To display it in HTML format, you could potentially write a
style sheet (XSLT) and display it as HTML, if the format of
your XML file is consistent.
