I am interested in distributing a database in XML format to users of Palm handhelds. I haave tried opening the file on a Toshiba and a Pcket PC and have been successful. I was wondering if it is possible to open the file on a Palm as well. Since I don't own a Palm, I am unable to actually test it out.

It is possible to Open or store the XML file on PALM OS Device. The Only diffcult thing u need is XML parser to parse it . Currently, no complete readymade XML parser is avaiable for Palm OS , But there are many libraries or source code(Any C code will work) which can provide mini parser.

Palm Os don't have file system. You can  store your XML file in form of records in Palm OS Database. Even there are function for file streaming but they internally use Databse only.
One record can have upto 64 K data. But if u use File stream fucntions u can cross this limit, as internally ur file is broken down in to various records..

Please could you help i have a PDA pocket PC 2003 and i need to be able to open and print xml bookings from our customers.  The xml file has to read a style sheet (style.css) when opening which sets the layout of the info.  This works well on my desktop pc.  But the xml appears blank on my PPC 2003.  Please help.
