I wish to use the document() function to create

this is a huge clue as to what I've done wrong,
but I just can't see it. What have I done wrong and how do I fix it?

It looks like you are not pointing to an XML document ... or if you think you are, it is not well-formed. Check for a garbage character at the very start of the document (sometimes I end up with one when running emacs because of my type-ahead).

I hope this helps.
