One of two ways:

1. use a command line XSLT processor (such as xsltproc, part of
   GNOME's libxsl project) to turn the XML into plain text (or
   specifically marked up text). 

2. write an XSLT processor in Emacs Lisp. This wouldn't be as
   difficult as it sounds and I'm not sure it isn't done already (by
   one of the various XML/Emacs projects going on).

These are only technical possibilites. From an administrative
standpoint the second one is probably the only option since you
wouldn't want to depend the Emacs info reader on xsltproc.
