XML Feed to remote sites

Hi folks,This is pretty cool. I'm glad there is finally a forum for this site!I am currently working on a personal project using xhtml. What i would like to do is provide an xml feed (verbage?) for other websites providing information from my website (say...a joke of the day for instance).What i need to understand is how to access that information from an xhtml or html page while still following standards.For example, lets say I have the xml content stored at http://mysite.com/xmlfile.xml

<joke>  <title>Joke of the Day from MySite.com</title>  <link>http://mysite.com</link>  <question>Q: What do you get when you goose a ghost></question>  <answer>A: A hand full of sheet</answer>  <date>2005-10-20</date></joke>

I thought that using a data island, i could access the xml file using src and datafld, etc. but the <xml> tag doesn't conform to strict xhtml.Ideally what I want is to be able to give the author a string that automatically reads/displays my xml content with their styling (I think that is the point of xml).Any thoughts are welcome. Thank you in advance.CheersAndrew

sorry the off-topic, and sorry the bad english! :) in this code:

<info>  <jokes>    <joke>      <title>Joke of the Day from MySite.com</title>      <link>http://mysite.com</link>      <question>Q: What do you get when you goose a ghost></question>      <answer>A: A hand full of sheet</answer>      <date>2005-10-20</date>    </joke>  </jokes></info>

how can i get the data, in a spam, div or table, of the joke? (darn, i'm a noob :)) :(

To the original poster, data islands aren't a web standard yet so you can't do what your asking without the help of .php or .asp or some other server-side scripting.
