The message comes from the XML parser, not from Saxon - Saxon is only the messenger, and tries hard to make this clear, but people still think it's Saxon complaining. I *think* that this message from Xerces usually means that a file has been successfully read, but it's not XML, or anything remotely resembling XML. In this case I suspect that the resource with URI "/" is a directory listing, and Xerces of course can't parse a directory listing as XML. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
