...and even *IF* it did break for that ONE instance, then simply do as I do in my xml_header.inc.php file: header( "Content-type: text/xml" ); print "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\" ?>\n"; Problem solved. EVERY other tag in an XML document is just straight up "html" like: <foo>bar</foo> There are no other <?xml tags or anything to worry about. Again the whole XML argument seems to be exaggerated. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
