As Eike suggested, the AxWebBrowser does, in fact, use the same rendering engine as Internet Explorer, so the output you're seeing is probably the result of the "default XML stylesheet" included in IE, which produces the very nice colored rendering of the XML with the ability to expand and collapse elements. Since this stylesheet makes some decisions about how to render the XML, such as collapsing chunks of whitespace, you may find that its results are not suitable for your application. If this is the case, as it seems to be for you, then your best bet is probably to have your stylesheet output an HTML rendering of your XML, formatted as you like it, rather than the raw XML with just some adjustments to whitespace. This will give you the level of control you require and should not be a terribly difficult task, if your requirements for how the result looks aren't too fancy. -Brandon :) On Fri, Apr 29, 2011 at 2:41 AM, Sen, Sanghamitra <sanghamitra_sen@xxxxxxx> wrote: > > Hi Brandon, > > Let me try to explain what I want to achieve. > > I am using VS 2003 code in in VB.Net > I am sending an XML request through vb code.

That should help us understand of what you're doing and help to pose a more specific question (which is more likely to get a quick answer). > > -Brandon :) > > > On Thu, Apr 28, 2011 at 9:09 AM, Sen, Sanghamitra <sanghamitra_sen@xxxxxxx> wrote: >> >> Hi, >> >> I have a requirement that xml should be displayed as shown in view >> source means the format should be intact . for example some data in >> element coming as whitespaces.
