Thanks for the tip, Guy. Only one question: What the heck is an <XMP> tag? Is this some MS convention for putting IE5 into debug mode or something? >As a side note I prefer the idea of seeing the original XML document from >source view.

"What I've downloaded," to me, means "what is causing my browser to behave like this." This would be the result tree, even though the URL of the document being displayed is the "pure" unadorned whatever.xml. I don't think this is necessarily a bug in IE5. The View Source menu choice perhaps ought to provide a branching selection, though: View->Source->Source Tree and View->Source->Result Tree. Or something like that. ("Source tree" and "result tree" are probably too much like jargon for casual visitors to an XML/XSL-driven site.) ============================================================= John E.
