I'm looking for an application that will display the XML schema for large (between 40-300MB in filesize) sets of data. Obviously, the built in viewers for major browsers fail at loading the data. Notepad++ and the like can't handle the data and either crash or freeze for 5 minutes when I try to scroll, and every standalone application I've tried, like TreeViwer has frozen or crashed before loading the data.

Are there any XML-viewing tools that can handle such large datasets? I'd prefer anything available for windows.
