Thanks. I'll re-try tonight.

Cool! Though I have to say I'm disappointed because I recently spent
aaaaages writing something which would allow correct movie
classification and you've now made it redundant :)   Great move,
though, pardon the pun!

Actually on a more serious note, is there any reason why the data
source has to go into the XML file? I think this just opens us up to
scrutiny from certain areas which may be unwelcome. I'd like to
suggest that the source at the top of the file is removed or, if it's
required to be a correct DTD, then just put junk in there. What do
folks think?
