How does XQUERY work - does one need special software or a module to make it run - I found an example and tried to run it in IE 5.5 as an xml file but it doesn't run (error is: Only one top level element is allowed in an XML document. Line 12, Position 2)  

- the example looked like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

     <book year="1994">
          <title>TCP/IP Illustrated</title>
     <book year="1992">
          <title>Advanced Programming in the Unix environment</title>

  for $b in document("http://www.bn.com/bib.xml")/bib/book
  where $b/publisher = "Addison-Wesley" and $b/@year > 1991
    <book year="{ $b/@year }">
     { $b/title }

The error arises becouse yoou have two top level elements <bib>. One for the XML, other for the query.
XQuery have to be executed on a XQuerz processor. Here is one to try http://www.cogneticsystems.com/xquery/xquery.html.
I don't think that IE 5.5 has one implemented.
