Hello again.  I'm trying to create my first page using jQuery with XML.  It's not working right now and I'm not sure how to figure out what's wrong.  I'd appreciate any help you can offer with this.
home.html
homecontent.xml
home.js
home.css

Everything works fine.  I recreated here http://jsbin.com/pecol/1/edit?html,css,js,output

If something is not working, you should simply give us a link to your test page.  If it is not public, then just upload to a public site. There must be something else in your code that is blocking.

Are you pulling the xml from the same domain?

I'm really learning this from the ground up at this point.  The lessons I'm following had me create a folder on my desktop that contains all of my files.  In all the other examples I created (following the lessons) I was able to open the html file from the desktop and everything worked correctly.  These did not.  After receiving your reply however, I imported the files into Visual Studio and ran the project.  When I did, everything worked.  I still don't know why it didn't work from the desktop though.  Any thoughts on that?

It could be the ajax?  Look for js errors first, then you can look at the network area and look at the file being called, is that getting an ok 200 with data or an error?

Do you know how to use the browsers console to debug?

Take a look at codecademy http://www.codecademy.com/learn.  It is good to get a base of javascript under your belt. You don't have to do it all, but if you get the basics, it will make learning jquery a lot easier.
