Oops Sarah,

I use an undocumented feature of the revXMLText (not revXMLTree!) with a third parameter with 
value TRUE in order to get the formatted xml:

put revXMLText(treeID[[,startNode],formatted]) into tFormattedXML

I have probably found the undocumented features by analysing the script of the xmltree-
view.rev stack in the sample stacks Folder. Below is a summary of all the API I have extracted 
from stack "xmltree-view.rev". If any one found parameters to fixed, please let me know (or 
better let rr know).
