You'll actually need to add a rule to the webserver, I think. You can add a line to the .htaccess file defining the .xml doctype as application/octet-stream and the browser will pop up a window asking you to save it or open with an external program whenever you click on a .xml file
Edit: Here's the actual line you need to add, I think (my syntax might be a little rusty, though, so doublecheck it)
AddType application/octet-stream xml
The first time you open one after adding this line, when you choose the external program, there ought to be a checkbox saying "always perform this action" or something similar... if you check it, notepad (or whatever program you choose) will autolaunch in the future.
