I use Ms Xml 4.0 to create a xml file.
If I open my file with text editor ( wordpad ) all my file is on only one
If I open my file with xml editor ( or internet explorer ) my file is Ok.

How I can "format" my xml file with line feed at end tag?

an XML editor or IE is recognizes the structure of an XML document. This has
nothing to do with linefeeds or indentation using spaces or tabs.

There is a property "preserveWhiteSpace" which can be set to TRUE/FALSE when
loading an XML document from a file. But if you construct your XML document
using the DOM-methods then you have no control where there should be any
linefeeds or spaces/tabs for indentation. Regarding the DOM this is not even
neccessary, because the structure of the XML document is given by the tag
sequence and not by a human-readable format.

If you need more information, please see (link maybe broken because of line
length limitation)
