Hy Lynn, the problem that Word 2003 can't open (as is tried) depends on the doctype header. you normally have something like this:
"\\RS\DocTypes\RS\RS.dtd"> <rs> ... </rs>
if you take notepad or something similar an change to:
<rs> ... </rs>
Word should be able to open it.

I agree, and i think it's something like "stocks to watch for"

Actually, the one file it didn't like only had a PUBLIC identifier with no SYSTEM information. Or the DTD wasn't listed as in your example. I haven't tried removing the DOCTYPE header (I'm an old SGML type and DOCTYPE headers are needed).
Even with a file opened, Word 03 still didn't like my DTD. Like I said just need time to experiment.
As for stocks to watch. Now that is scary. Arbortext, a division of Macro$carf. Or worse. Macro$carf Epic. Enough to scare me.
