Trac has a nice aid for development and template customization that lets you view the raw HDF of any page simply by adding the format=hdf parameter to the query string.

However, the output is currently rather hard to read because it's displayed using the "dotted path scheme" (see the http://www.clearsilver.net/docs/man_hdf.hdf ClearSilver documentation), with every node on it's own line.

I think it would be great if we could either output the HDF using the "nested elements scheme", or maybe even as XML. The latter would have the benefit of being displayed nicely in both IE and Mozilla, both offering features like collapsible sub-trees. The only drawback to using XML is that numered nodes would need to use a different syntax (like <child0> instead of <0>) so that the node names would be valid XML names.
