Howdy all,

I've been told that our comapny needs to set up an XML feed for some of our trade partners to get product data from us.  I've written the code to generate the XML in ASP, question I can't figure out is: how do I get the browser (or whatever) to recognize the output as XML?  The response from the ASP file has the correct XML header, but IE/Mozilla "see" it as an HTML output.

ex:

my file name: catalog-onix.asp

output:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252" ?>
<!DOCTYPE ONIXMessage SYSTEM "http://www.editeur.org/onix/2.1/02/reference/onix-international.dtd">
<ONIXMessage>
      <Header>
            <FromCompany></FromCompany>
            <FromPerson></FromPerson>
            <FromEmail></FromEmail>
            <SentDate></SentDate>
      </Header>
      <Product>
            <RecordReference></RecordReference>
...etc
            <NotificationType></NotificationType>
      </Product>
</ONIXMessage>

Do I need to have the ASP code generate a .xml file on the server and then Response.Redirect to it? I've never done this before, so I don't know quite how it's supposed to work
