ASP Master Pages TreeView XML Display in Contentplaceholder?

I'm using the following 'Bookstore' XML file with ASP Master Pages.
I have a TreeView in the Left div and a contentplaceholder in the right div.
So far the TreeView reads the XML file very well.

Q. How do I display the XML Book, Chapter, Abstract in the contentplaceholder?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Bookstore>
  <genre name="Business">
    <book ISBN="BU1032" Title="The Busy Executive's Database Guide" Price="19.99">
      <chapter num="1" name="Introduction">
        Abstract...
      </chapter>
      <chapter num="2" name="Body">
        Abstract...
      </chapter>
      <chapter num="3" name="Conclusion">
        Abstract...
      </chapter>
    </book>
    <book ISBN="BU2075" Title="You Can Combat Computer Stress!" Price="2.99">
      <chapter num="1" name="Introduction">
        Abstract...
      </chapter>
      <chapter num="2" name="Body">
        Abstract...
      </chapter>
      <chapter num="3" name="Conclusion">
        Abstract...
      </chapter>
    </book>
    <book ISBN="BU7832" Title="Straight Talk About Computers" Price="19.99">

      </chapter>
    </book>
  </genre>
</Bookstore>

Well, the content placeholder is where your web page (the page that is using the masterpage) will be display.
is you are trying to display something in the master page, dont put it in the content placeholder.
if you are tying to access the masterpage s content from the web page, here a link:

Typo, I do have a default.aspx page opening in the contextplaceholder.
Added the following to the TreeView, displays XML better:

<DataBindings>
<asp:TreeNodeBinding DataMember="book" ValueField="ISBN" TextField="Title" NavigateUrl="~/Default.aspx"/>
<asp:TreeNodeBinding DataMember="chapter" ValueField="num" TextField="name"/>
</DataBindings>
</asp:TreeView>
 None-the-less, still need to open another XML file in the default.aspx via a TreeView click. Here's the new XML:

<Bookstore>
<genre name="Business">
<book ISBN="BU1032" Title="The Busy Executive's Database Guide" Price="19.99" Dir="another.xml">
<chapter num="1" name="Introduction">
Abstract...
</chapter>
<chapter num="2" name="Body">
Abstract...
</chapter>
<chapter num="3" name="Conclusion">
Abstract...
</chapter>
</book>
