I want to see my DOCX in its pure XML format.

Various application like internet browsers and visual studio will open the file up in Word for me.

I've also tried renaming the document to .xml extension and it just opens up in notepad showing a bunch of unintelligible text.

It's a zipped file. Rename it ending in .zip to view it.
