You need to paste your XML, and then highlight the lines in question, and press on the "code" button ({ } on the editor toolbar).

The code button

This will nicely format and syntax highlight your code and/or XML.

Note that if your XML doesn't get recognized despite the code block, you can add

<!-- language: lang-xml -->

before the code block. This has been elaborated in this page and further in here.

Feature was added in 2011 so I realize it was not available at the time the question and the other answers were placed.

In the interest of someone stumbling into this problem in the future, here's an example how to use it (revision 4). –  TheTerribleSwiftTomato Jul 27 '13 at 9:44

XML is still a language so use the regular code button (its the icon with binary on it) otherwise use to post the code and then past the link here.

Not that hard

Please post sample XML in the question; not on a separate site. –  ben is uǝq backwards Apr 17 '13 at 10:05
