I simply need to visualize XML data on the node-red webserver (for example on: <ip.addr>:1880/xml), 
but if I send the XML information to the http response node, the webpage doesnt show the whole XML structure and just every value in one row. I tried it with a JSON object and it worked just fine, but not
with XML. What step do I need to add?

Thanks a lot!

If you want the browser to know it is xml data and then display with formatting, you need to set the appropriate content-type header in the response, most likely to 'application/xml';

In a Function node:
    msg.headers = {
        "content-type": "application/xml"
    return msg;
