This has been a question without a good answer for many years, a niche that's been wanting a solution no matter what the technology was at the time.

Many years ago I worked in an environment called 4th Dimension, which was a database with easy programming. You may want to look into something like Access or an open source equivalent.

You could do this easily by: open your list in excel in column A in column B use for formula =CONCATENATE("<item>",A1,"</item>") and fill it down for each item on your list.

You may want to consider converting the InfoPath form to PDF as part of an automated workflow (or manual action) and send that to the browser for printing.
