How to format XML in GVIM

In this tutorial we are going to format an XML via the VIM tool

 First, highlight the XML you want to format.

Then, in normal mode, type 

! xmllint --format -

Your command-line at the bottom will look like this:

:'<,'>!xmllint --format -

Then hit enter.

 If you are using vim on windows you will need to make xmllint available to the console.  I download this application 

and I updated my windows %PATH% variable to point to it.
