The web page looks like that because the browser only obeys HTML tags and doesn' t know what to do with yours.

An XML document as a single line is perfectly valid and should be understood by any XML parser.

Not a "beginner's" question. Moving.

What is "application/xml" supposed to mean? Why not just "text/xml" for the MIME type?

Sure - you can substitute escaped characters for the < and > used to delineate xml tags, you can use the method in String class but it would be kind of time consuming for so many tags. The browser will display < and > in place of the excaped character string.

This ranch FAQ gives one example of "pretty printing" XML with indentation but I found more with a google search "java pretty print xml"
