Well, I still don't get an XML file when I visit that page on my 
server.  Granted, all the information that is in the file is there, 
however, I can't use PHP's nifty XML parsing tools to get that information.

To clarify the point, I would advise simply not using an XML file to 
represent the data, unless such a file is indeed attainable, whether 
actually existing on the file system or not.  If a file like this can be 
generated at a given URL or by a command to the server, that would also 
be neato, but if nothing like the really exists, I would advise 
re-writing the page without the XML at all.

All of this is assuming that I am understanding what you are saying - in 
that, whomever wrote the documentation simply used XML as a way to 
present the data.  I would suggest, rather, a screen-shot of the actual 
page, or what the actual page looks like.
