Move the <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> to the first line.

Is wrong because you dont mix two namespaces (XHTML and XSI), but you
embed one file into another. The resulting file Is not  valid xml.

Heres is a example that mix MathML and other stuff on XHTML:

I am still learning XML, so _this can be wrong_, but maybe you can do that:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<meta xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance";
  <xsi:your data/>
  <xsi:your data/>
  <xsi:your data/>

Because you are working with XML, I thing you sould validate your
files to debug it.

If you are working with XHTML files, you sould care about the mime
content type your server declare. Theres wildly different rules for
text/html and application/xhtml+xml even if the XHTML code dont

Unfortunally IE6 is broken and dont support application/xhtml+xml yet.
I suggest defensive programming here.


If you use SVN, you can automatically validate the uploaded files
(with a post-commit script).

Unrelated comment: I am curious about Firefox. I have read somewhere
that you can concatenate two XML files on this browser. Somewhere on
the xulplanet comments...

And now a unrelated snip of code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type='text/xsl' href='xmlspec.xsl'?>
<!DOCTYPE spec PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD Specification V2.1//EN" "xmlspec.dtd"[
<!ENTITY % entities SYSTEM "entitieswd.dtd" >
<!ENTITY wgmb SYSTEM "wgmb.txt" >
<!ENTITY prevwgmb SYSTEM "prevwgmb.txt" >
<!ENTITY status "editors' copy">
<spec w3c-doctype="rec" role="edcopy">
    <title>SOAP Version 1.2 Part 1: Messaging Framework</title>

I found a fascinathing hack^H^Hfeature the use of wgmb to include a file.
So much to learn with XML! :D

This is interesting because is more modular. The data is not embeded
into the file (wgmb.txt).
You are triing to embed data, I know. But maybe you are wrong and is a
bad idea  (:

Also I guest is better to use UTF8 than iso-8859-1, so you can mix
north europe stuff with english, japan, israel, etc..
