To do what? I suspect that maybe what you are trying to accomplish can be
done without a language being instantiated in XML.
But it wouldn't be that hard to write up an XML parser that can
modify/execute objects, methods or events using introspection -
introspection is supported pretty well in both C# or Java.

This challenge might be for Eli only, but if you know of any languages
based on XML (compiled or interpreted that handle math and strings and
basic data structures), I'd be interested. That is, logic and control
flow are defined in the XML itself and not in some auxilliary language
like perl or python.
I remember seeing a web page proposing something like this by Tim
Berners Lee (I think). But I'm not sure it was ever implemented.
Curious and without web access at the moment,
