How do you link to XML in Director?

I have several XMl questions with multiple answers already set up.  I also have an SWF parser file set up to read the XML content.  I have imported the SWF parser into director and also added the XML extra to my projector.  When I play my projector, all's I see is the xml code on my questions page.  I am trying to re-produce a learning CD where the user sees a question and then selects from 4 answers??  I need to be steered in the right direction please!

A flash member would not utilize the XML Xtra, one may have to rewrite the parcing code in Lingo to get Diector to parce the file.

There has been some grumbling about the XML xtra, here are some lingo alternatives:

DOM-Lingo good for DOM compliant minds

The problems with teh XML Xtra (memory leaks) have been fixed in MX 2004.  Its faster than the scripts but you do need to include the Xtra in your projector or mark it as "download if needed" for shockwave.
