Can XML reports do this?

A practical problem with XML data and
reports generated from them ...
"The data and information may be present in the
content of the files, or in the names of files/folders/zip-files, or in the file
and folder attributes, or even in the folder hierarchical structure. The zip
file which can contain in itself files, folders, and even more zip files, is like the "grain of
sand" of William Blake's
To see the World in a Grain of Sand,
Heaven in a Wild Flower,
To hold Infinity in the Palm of Your hand,
Eternity in an Hour.
If there is a "world" in the zip file, akin
to the grain of sand, then the reports may be generated to understand the worlds
in the grains of sand, or the beach where the sand is, or the effect of the
breeze on the sand dune on the beach, or the effect of the changing dune back on
the grain of sand."
Can XML help
create all these kinds of reports ...
