How To Xml Inside Html

If you’re working with XML data and want to display it in your HTML page, you might be wondering how to do that. This blog post will guide you through the process of embedding XML data into your HTML documents.

Using the <object> tag

One method of including XML data in your HTML file is by using the <object> tag. The <object> tag allows you to include external resources like images, videos, and even XML files in your HTML document.

Here’s an example of how to include an external XML file using the <object> tag:

<object data="example.xml" type="application/xml" width="300" height="200">
  <p>Your browser does not support the <object> tag.</p>

In this example, the XML file “example.xml” is included in the HTML document. If the browser doesn’t support the <object> tag, it will display the message “Your browser does not support the <object> tag.”

Using JavaScript and AJAX

Another way to include XML data in your HTML document is by using JavaScript and AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML). AJAX allows you to make requests to a server and load data (like XML files) without refreshing the page.

For this method, first, you need to create a function that makes an AJAX request and retrieves the XML data. Then, you need to parse and manipulate the XML data to display it on your HTML page.

Here’s a simple example of how to fetch and display XML data using AJAX:

function loadXMLData() {
  var xhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
  xhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {
    if (this.readyState == 4 &amp;&amp; this.status == 200) {
  };"GET", "example.xml", true);

function displayXMLData(xml) {
  var xmlDoc = xml.responseXML;
  var x = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("example-element")[0];
  var y = x.childNodes[0];
  document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = y.nodeValue;

&lt;button onclick="loadXMLData()"&gt;Load XML Data&lt;/button&gt;
&lt;p id="demo"&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

In this example, clicking the “Load XML Data” button will trigger the loadXMLData() function, which fetches the “example.xml” file using an AJAX request. Once the data is fetched, the displayXMLData() function is called to display the XML data in the <p> element with the ID “demo”.


Embedding XML data in HTML can be done in several ways, such as using the <object> tag or AJAX. Knowing how to include and manipulate XML data in your HTML document can be beneficial when working with external XML files or fetching data from APIs.
