Need help viewing .xml Method Reports

I have been exploring different types and settings of kriging with the Geostatistical Wizard, and in an effort to be systematic and allow for some refinement of my approach have been saving the Method Reports as .xml files.  Now I am ready to review the settings I used for the different models to see what worked well and what did not.  Unfortunately, when I open the .xml files in the default program (IE or Firefox) they are not very readable, and are full of code and repetitive parameter names.  The dialog box that pops up at the end of the Wizard is readable enough, and if I could view this in a spreadsheet format, then that would be fine, too.  How can I make use of these .xml files so that I do not have to wade through all these extraneous characters and symbols?  Thanks for any advice.
