LOL

No. XML is a markup language. You are seeing hex code for whatever Apple interpreter will execute this code. XML is a very high level language, its not even really a language...its just flags data the same way HTML does but you basically make your own tags for all different types of data.

This is an OOOOOOOOOOLD easter egg. I think I remember it from Mac OS 8.1! Yeah, when the ROM started being stored inside the System Folder instead of in that ROM chip.

Cool.
