Thanks for that, Massimo - at least I know that it's not something silly that I'm doing, and this information also helps me to evaluate the usefulness of D8 for my purposes.
Did you run a PHP test on your local machine to make sure that it is capable of working with XML, XSL or XSLT extension. If it is not, be sure to enable it in order to make it work.
Also you might want to consider buying a book called "PHP for Dreamweaver 8" whose authored by David Powers. In his book, it discuss very briefly about XML, XSL or XSLT technologies and how it relates to data-driven scripted programming or PHP application server.
Also, you also want to do some of evaluation of Cafe Townsend files as part of Dreamweaver 8 Tutoring files for you to learn more about how XML or XSL or XSLT works and build one to make it work for you. Along with that, there is some helpful and useful information at Adobe Dreamweaver - Developer Centre.
Here is this article called Displaying XML Data at this URL below:
Additionally, important to make a note about Dreamweaver 8.0.2 Updater issues relating to XML, XSL and XSLT around PHP/MySQL server, please refer to this Dreamweaver TechNote at this URL below:
Finally, because of DW8 8.0.2 Updater presents some issues, author David Powers offers more detailed information and updated information to relfect the known issues. I can't find his weblog address right now on top of my head at the moment. If you want, I can dig and get the right URL for you. :)
Hopefully that helps to direct you to the right path to your process working with XML technologies. Let us know how it turn out to be.
Perhaps you might want to get some cup of coffee and get some FRESH ground coffee from Starbucks, that will be of a big help for you. ;)
