XML in cgi

I'm using Revolution to handle cgi scripts under Apache. Works well 
with text files.

I'm encountering trouble when trying to use XML commands/functions.
Because revCreateXMLTreeFromFile was added in Ver. 2, I'm assuming it 
is a part of the currently available Darwin engine (used for cgi). This 
function does not seem to be working in cgi (see examples).

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Dave B.
