After a night's sleep, I noticed I didn't use
"document('http://mysite.com/xml/s1.xml')/here" with '/here' on the end
though I know I did at one time. I do not get the error now but the page
does not show the enclosed text and I don't see it in DOM Inspector on
Firefox. Perhaps it wouldn't? Don't know. Better tool for that?

Could it be I need to look at my transform of the inserted xml to make
sure something's done with that?
