Default Creating XML Data Island

After typing in <TAG>by</TAG> on the bottom half of (page 8) and creating the (parts.xml) I discovered perhaps an error. I would like to know if this is in fact an error, either in code, or in print. Due to the code prior to the code on (bottom of page 8) working as printed and in coding syntax.

The code did not display any data from the external (parts.xml) after running the HTML with the printed XML ID and SRC to display in a <TABLE>

If not, an error, a reason as to why would WROX include code that was broken in the first place. -demonstration purposes...perhaps!

I also cross-checked with the code supplied in your ZIP'd download area to concur my conclusions. Would like an answer so that I may see if a HTML file can actually use an external XML file; to create a data island.

Thank You to all that answer before you answer! -The Graphfix

Sorry, to anyone that actually read this. It would have been nice if the editor to this manual would have said they were being (Browsers specific - in this case IE); in any of the paragraphs before any coding were to begin in Chapter One, as to stop any stupid questions like the one I posted above.

My apologies. I didn't expect any browser specific errors - the author. The book was writtenusing a Windows platform only. XML is supposed to be standardized. That is intention and also my hope, and also large part of the reason for the existence of XML.

The problem with the code supplied on pages 8 and 10 is that it uses Microsoft's Tabular Data Control to access the remote xml data. TDC is not part of the HTML spec so isn't supported by browsers other than IE. Has anyone figured out how to access remote xml data without using the TDC constructs such as <DIV DATAFLD="region"> ?

I am using IE 6 and I am having the same problem. I hope that the rest of the code in this book works better than this.
