Printing XML Tags

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated December 14, 2013)

Word 2003 includes the ability to handle XML-based information in documents. As part of this capability, Word allows you to print XML tags when you print a document for which they are appropriate. If you have an XML document, and a schema is attached and applied to the document, then you can follow these steps to print the XML tags:

  1. Choose Options from the Tools menu. Word displays the Options dialog box.
  2. Display the Print tab. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The Print tab of the Options dialog box.

  4. Make sure the XML Tags check box is selected.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Print your document as you normally would.

It is interesting to note that even though XML is touted as a feature of Word 2003, full XML features are not available for all variations of the product. All variations of Word 2003 can save XML documents with the Word XML schema, but only the Word provided with Office 2003 Professional or the stand-alone version of Word 2003 include all the XML capabilities.
