Not without seeing the diagnostics you were given !!

My _guess_ would be that the "xyz.xml" file includes some
sort of relative URL in it (e.g. for the DTD).  To fix that
class of problem, just feed argv[0] directly into the
document builder so that the parser can resolve it, or else
modify the document so it doesn't use a relative URL.  This
particular issue is noted in the method's documentation,
but it nonetheless seems to get a bit of confusion.
