Hope you guys can help. Trying for over a week. Not very experienced with Javascript.

I have an xml file that I retreive via terminal emulation. I want to parse the results into a textarea in html. I am able to view the file in the textarea in xml format but have been unable to parse it into lines of the inner text.

Here is the javascript/jquery:

var x = ""
var y = ""
var Command="";
var cmd=""
$(document).ready(function() {
    alert('jquery working');

$('#tester').click(function() {
    var APOresp = new ActiveXObject("DAT32COM.TERMINALEMULATION");
    var Command = "<FORMAT>>*IA</FORMAT>";
    var x = APOresp.ResponseXML;
    xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
    xmlDoc.async = "false";
    $(x).find('RESPONSE').each(function() {
    $("#disptext").val($(this).text() + "<br />");

Here is a small portion of the xml file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!--This is a host terminal response-->
<RESPONSE xmlns="x-schema:C:\fp\swdir\Content\emulation-schema.xml">
    <LINE INDEX="2"><SOM/></LINE>

I want to get the text of the "LINE: tag and loop it into the textarea. It does put in the whole xml file in xml format if I use the last commented out line in the javascript file. For some unknown reason, I am unable to use the xmlDoc function. I just get errors. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Sorry only read your subject and it was enough. There is _no_ unusual XML file. Either it is XML or it is not!

Thank you Member 10876140. Now please define "unusual XML" otherwhise.....try to describe what Errors you get instead of "I just get errors."
