Hey. its been a long time since I written at AO. Well anyway.! On my computer<a dell> they have this DELL ALERT prog. thing. Everytime I open it then close it, it says that it generated a log file on my computer. No big deal but when I checked what was inclosed something caught my eye. It is a html based file, it starts of with <root> blaaaaahblah and ends with </root>. Now this is writing to root right? I thing so. I never seen this before. How does it work and how can I get to were it is writing? I heard of root and did a google search but got mixed results. Any clue? some links<so i can learn> please
bis spaeter. thanx

Don't hold me to this, but I don't think that <root></root> has anything to do with the power of root on *nix machines or something. And you are on Windows....So why worry? You have a block of swiss cheese for an OS!
Don\'t mistake lack of talent for genius.

Could be an XML tagging scheme...
I doubt there is anything to worry about.

window xp professional! Swiss cheese, no more like a big hole. lol
I'm not worrying about it since I'm supposed to trust dell. I just wanted to learn about it and what function it does.

<root> </root> is a math tag. As in <root>2<of>64</root>
But this is not an html its a <math> tag
Explains it a bit.
All XML documents must have a root tag
All XML documents must contain a single tag pair to define the root element. All other elements must be nested within the root element. All elements can have sub (children) elements. Sub elements must be in pairs and correctly nested within their parent element:
