Default IE7 displays a blank page...

How can I display XML document directly or indirectly embedded in the HTML pages?
I am attaching the code that I used (from "Beginning XML Databases" by Gavin Powell). The IE7 displays a blank page...

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
<body color="red">
   <xml id="xmlParts">
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
             <description>Brake hose</description>
             <price> $22.45</price>

The HTML page works in IE7 however your html doesnt have any instructions to display anything but the title.

You have an XML data island, which is data, not presentation.
See here:


Good luck
