When modifying the “Macros.xml” file, you can check if the file contains any syntax errors by simply opening it with a Web browser. The language used to define 4th Dimension macros is XML. Web browsers can display the contents of XML files in the form of a hierarchical list and parse their syntax. If an error is detected (for instance, a missing end tag), the browser will indicate its location.
