Jeff & David,

Thank you for your responses.  

I will be happy to help if I can.  I've gone through the 
'tutorial-develop-webapp.xml' document found with Cocoon verion 2.1. 
 Currently I am stuck trying to validate my 'form' tags in my 
userForm.xml file.  It appears the 'document' dtd does not understand 
the tag and doesn't support xmlns attributes.

I am trying to start out small by copying the example from the 
Cocoon-2.1->Tutorial->WebApp.  The basic structure of the document is:

    <form handler="Create Department.html" >
        <text name="name" size="30" required="true" />
         <submit name="Create Department" />

The problem with this document is 'forrest validate'  does not recognize 
the form tag?  I searched through the list of dtd's in both the head of 
cocoon-2.1 and xml-forrest.  I can't seem to find a valid dtd document?

Anyone have any thoughts about what area of the code I should 
investigate next?

Thanks again!
Jason Kary
