Of course, but the XML can be translated to something else that can be
nicely printed. I've seen SGML->TeX tools, for instance; one can do the
same with XML (if nothing else we can put it through an SGML
intermediary that already supports such conversions, like Docbook,
though I hear there's an XML version of Docbook in the making).
