Well I can tell you that based on the error message, it looks like you
have some data that isn't in an element... the first tag:  <?xml
version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>  is just kind of a declaration.. it
doesn't have a closing tag.. the next thing that should come along the
is document root element (something like <list>...</list>).. but looks
like you go right into some text:  "Beginning XMLJohnMastering

Hi evolters...

I've decided to do my latest project based on XML, for the experience.
client doesn't care either way, as long as I deliver something.  I've
with XML a little while ago (I even remember answering a few questions
at the time :)   ) but now I'm lost.
My XML file is now properly generated, although the accompanying DTD is
done. It's a listing of companies, with contact info, and addresses.

I'm trying to generate the appropriate html pages from that, using
My Web server is IIS 5.1, the version that comes with Windows XP
Professional.  I'm going with a script found on MSDN, and guess what,
script doesn't work...  The script can be found here:

And this is the error I am getting using IE: (I have a straight
of the example in the above URL). Anyone here has a clue???

    Switch from current encoding to specified encoding not supported.

Thanks for any help thrown my way...
