I am new when it comes to creating a style sheet to be used when importing xml data. I have read through the previous posts and I have changed my code numerous times and I am still not having any luck. I would appreciate any help!

XML Data:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

The source of the xml data does not have the "-" I just copied that content from the web viewer within File Maker. If I open my style sheet within a XML writer and if I check the style sheet if it is well formed I get an invalid syntax error for line 2 of the style sheet.

When I'm in File Maker and I try to import the xml data from the url I get an Error that says... XML parsing Error: Expected a 'version=', encoding=', or 'standalone=' Line Number:2 Column Number:16

Can you attach a zipped version of both text files? There are limits to what this forum can show. If your source is served, open it in a web browser and save it as text.

The xml declaration must end with "?>". I am not sure if this is a transmission problem (I suggested zipping the files), but once I fixed that, it worked.
