    I’ve been trying to get TILE to work with some of my own documents. So far I’ve been working on creating xml files, but I can’t seem to get the load to work for xml documents — including the xml document I saved out from your Swinburne sample. Not sure how to proceed. I’ve got TILE running on a virtual linux box through the Amazon EC2 cloud service.
