XML formatting

Would it be possible for Burp Suite to properly format XML requests in the 'Params' tab? Cheers.

The "params" tab provides a table view of parameters, which works well for name/value pairs like URL parameters. A table view doesn't work well for data that has a tree-like structure, like XML data. We could possibly provide a tree representation of an XML document in the UI to allow editing in that form, but in most cases the plain raw XML is just as good, so we recommend people just use the Raw or XML views for editing XML requests.
