The XML page cannot be displayed. Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

I am usingVisual Studio 2008 - Web Developer

On my local machine I have created a web page and I am currently testing deployment from my PC (not a seperate web server).  

My steps so far:
Build: Publish Web Site
Target Location: c:\CompiledSite

After publishing I copied the path C:\CompiledSite\Order_Entry.aspx into Internet explorer, but I am getting an XML error (see below).  My knowledge level in web development is low so I need some help resolving this issue.

Thanks for yor help.
