Hmm. Thanks! I see that I forgot to put in the two resources I was using 
to fix my feed: http://feedvalidator.org and 
So I guess I am confused as to what a namespace is? I thought a DTD WAS 
a namespace, as it describes all the possible names and configurations 
of names used in a piece of markup. What is a namespace?

IE wasn't doing my XML correctly, much less XSLT. All I got was code, 
even when Firefox was partially transforming my XML into XHTML.
Is there a plugin I need for IE?
What tools do you use?

Oh, interesting. I hadn't thought about other languages. I might sound 
xenocentric, but I always imagined people programming in English in 
other countiries. I wonder if the hello world program looks like this in 
German C?
#umfassen <nrmlio.h> //Normal IO

nichts main() {
    schreibf("hallo welt!");

Thanks for the help!
