No, you can not prevent people who want to steal text and image information on a page from stealing it. XML has nothing to do with securing information. It is a mechanism for representing information into a defined structure. If I can see it on my screen I will be able to take it. Even if that means taking a screenshot and cutting that info out with photoshop.

If you want to absolutely secure information, don't put it on a publicly designed medium like the web. :)
