Keeps saying "Invalid zip file" ... I tried downloading it twice in case.

I think something might be up.

What browser are you using?

Same problem here, I am using IE6 and the file was only 3KB which is suspect in itself

I'm a bit confused as to what an article is. thought there would be and explanation as to how it was done. Perhaps I'm missing something.

Make sure both layer 4 and layer 5 are pointing to the right XML file. You can set the path in the text box.

Here's the documentation for the XML files:

I figured out how to change the names but I can't seem to figure out how to change the functions or titles for the people.

Make sure both layer 4 and layer 5 are pointing to the same XML file. You can set the path in the text box.
