The following code class compiles correctly, it doesn't throw any exceptions, it, however, does not seem to be loading my XML document.  It loads...  just no questions (it is meant to generate a quiz based on an XML document).  Any suggestions?

what do you get when you run debug and look at the loading in oninit ?

c# can sometimes have a nasty little habit of erasing the page load initialization.
Add a line into your InitializeComponent() function:

private void InitializeComponent() {
  this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Page_Load);
  this.btnSubmit.Click += new EventHandler(this.btnSubmit_Click);
