XML is one of the formats in which PMs may be downloaded in bulk. Does anyone know how to display the XML in a format similar to the online format? Is there a style sheet? I'd be willing to edit the head and tail and rename the file extension to turn the XML dump into an XHTML document. -- thanks.

Chris,

Thanks very much. I messed around in their docs for a while and couldn't figure anything out, so I'll stick with the csv download for now. -- thanks again.

I just downloaded PM messages in XML format. Tested the file with both IExplorer and Firefox and both browsers can render PM messages in readable form.

Yes, if you are a XML guru you can build a database or what have you.

Harri,

Thanks very much for checking this out. I have tried without success to render the XML download in IExplorer and Firefox, but obviously it can be done, because you can do it. I checked again tonight, and still no dice for me. We had a similar experience recently where some people could hear nefertiti's clips and others couldn't.

In any case, the CSV option is pretty good, and I really don't want to go building an XML database. -- Thanks again.
