Right. Workaround time. I have now outputted the file as an xml page so I can use an RSS feed instead. It's half working. I now have the title field from the DB xml displaying as the title of my RSS widget, but the random quote does not show, but it does appear as a tooltip when I hover my mouse over the text.
Also, it's not randomly picking a quote: just putting the same entry from the db in, even though the page at the DB end displays different quotes.
I'm still working on it, so what I've described above maybe slightly out if you view my blog.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Below is the code I've used to create the xml:
<loop Id==? db=main>
