Hey,
What is the source of this error and how can I fix it?
"Warning: Sablotron error on line 1: XML parser error 4: not well-formed (invalid token) in home.php on line 30"

        <?php
            $xh = xslt_create();
            $myResult = xslt_process($xh, 'http://yookkoo.com/Forum/rss.php?f=1', 'http://www.yookkoo.com/Website/TransNews.xsl');
            echo $myResult
            xslt_free($xh);
        ?>

$myResult = ... is line 30

The solution you gave did not work.  It only left me with a blank space where the transformed document would go, without any errors.  I'm running PHP 4.x (I believe it could be 4.1, I'll find out later) and Linux.

The error means your document has incorrect syntax, you should look for invalid tags or extra white space on the end/beginning of the document

Both of those XML files reported as valid by Tidy and look OK when downloaded and viewed as source.

Could it be that there is no Schema for the XML document?  If not Is there another way to achieve what I would like to do?

Answer to you first question:
No.

Your second question:
Good change your error will disappear when you upgrade PHP to a newer version (say the latest 4.x version).

If my servers running 4.4.1 this should be sufficiently new enough not to cause that problem.  So what else can I try?
