They should have the extension .XML

Have you loaded the data editor correctly? Press File >> Load Database >> Load Editor Data

So save them to the folder listed in the instructions in the download.

instructions on how to install

1. Press the download button and press save
2. Save it to somewhere like desktop..
3. Then extract the file using a program like winrar to Documents/ Sports Interactive/ Football Manager 2011/ Editor data
3. If there is not an Editor data folder... create one
4. Launch FM11..Start a new game and click change database (Bottom Right Corner of the box that appears)
5. Select the Database then its the usual stuff from then on

are xml files the compressed version of the dbc files then?
No the other way around. dbc files are compressed .xml files.

@ Footy - My bad. I wasn't quite sure what you where asking.

Either open 7zip via the start menu and then open the file and extract
or
Right click the file and go 'open with' and choose 7zip and then extract.
