XML Data


Recommended Posts


I'm a bit stuck at the moment I have worked out how to pull data from a well-formed XML file but I have a problem when it comes to an XML file that is supplied by some cinema software that i would like to use in an HTML file. It doesn't look well formed so my javascript is not working please see link below 

I need to parse the name duration rating and sessions etc to different divs. I could do this if it was well formed but not sure with how it is formed. Hope someone can help thanks jeremy


The parser script that I have amended is


<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {
            type: "GET",
            url: "data.xml",
            dataType: "xml",
            success: xmlParser

function xmlParser(xml) {
        $(xml).find("painting").each(function () {
         $("#container").append('<div class="painting"><img src="images/' + $(this).find("image").text() + '"width="200" height="225" alt="' + $(this).find("title").text() + '" /><br/><div class="title">' + $(this).find("title").text() + '<br/>$' + 
        $(this).find("price").text() + '</div></div>');
