I was going through one of my old XML books to brush up on things and i cannot for the life of me do any simple data binding using xml. Assuming all of the files are in the same folder I should be able to create a data island with this line: <xml id="pageInfo" src="fpinfo.xml"></xml> Where the src is a file in the same folder. Then in the body i should only need this: <div id="pageTitle" datasrc="#pageInfo" datafld="title"></div> Given that there is a title field in the fpinfo.xml. It just doesn't work though. Tried a couple different tutorials in the book and i can't make it happen. Am i doing something obvious and silly?
