True it is html and good/great suggestion! However, I have a couple objectives going on - 1st is to parse the file/data, but 2nd is to access xml on remote servers and parse the xml (albeit in this case html). I need to do both, access the file on a server, and parse it. I also have other objectives on the presentation or client-side, but right now, I'd like to pretend that this is an actual xml file on a server. Eventually my customer will produce an actual xml file (and I need to know how to do this in general), hopefully sooner rather than later.
So, wondering if you (all) can still help me figure out why my code isn't finding all the <td>'s and spitting them out onto the screen in the target div? The code is supposed to create an html table of the data in that xml(html) file.
