Documentation output as an XML file

Prior to output to the existing format options (HTML website, CHM ect), does the data exist as a single XML file?

I have a user who wants the documentation as XML!

For code, it's just the XML comments file. Perhaps that's what they want? For MAML, the topic files are XML. You could merge the content of the XML comments files into one but they'd be useless for IntelliSense as that's per assembly. You could do something similar with the MAML if they were merged into a file under a single root element I suppose.

Thank you Eric.

I produced an HTML version and it was just what they wanted! They have dropped the requirement for an XML feed.
