  i've tried the "get" method, but i get the XML instance file as a plain text document. And what i wanted is to be able to edit this XML instance through a GUI.
  did i do something wrong, or i have to use something else instead of "get" method?

  Kind regards,

Just add another submission like the one you have, but with a method of

Subject: edit an XML instance document

Hi there!

I'm using the XML Forms Generator to generate XForms from an XML
instance file.
But i would like to know how can i edit the XML instance document
through the XForm GUI?
i was thinking about using this submission method:
method="put" id="submit"/>
Okay, it works, but how can i open the instance XML form, back into
an XForm, so that the user can add more content to the same XML instance?

Thanks for your support and for the replies from before!
