How XML works?

Hi, Forumers,
Does it make sense as my friend said to"turn on XML" in IIS as we did for PHP?
There's no interpreter for XML, just as there's no interpreter for HTML, right?
The assertion is that IIS runs an XML interpreter and delivers the results to the browser.
On the contrary, I say that once the browser gets the xml, it renders it according to a schema found on the Internet.
What is the big picture here, please?
Oh by the way, "on the Internet" is too vague. If true, then where?
Further, Is it the case that xml requires a CSS or such like in order to be rendered into the browser?
Thank you.

Normally the .XML files are supported by default in IIS, you don't need to add anything like CSS or something like that.
Just putting the .XML file on the web space will do fine...

Each browser has an own way to interpret and show .XML files to the user.
