XML parsing problem (newbie)

I am fairly new to Objective C but I am having a really odd problem which I cant seem to solve. I am having problem parsing an xml file. Firstly I read a config file, which contains a list of url's of other xml files to be downloaded. I store these URL's in NSString values within an NSObject.

At the point I call my loadXML function I declare a new NSString, and set it to equal the url set within the data object. When my parser function reads this file I log the elements it finds on the page within the parser didStartElement function, it logs the found elements as HTML , HEAD, TITLE, META, STYLE !!

When I run exactly the same process but hard code the address of the xml, it runs perfectly and finds all the relevant elements. When I run a log I can see the function is receiving exactly the same NSString value each time!

Has anyone come across this before or does anyone have any idea as to what I might be doing wrong? Would code examples help?

    The corresponding code that follows along with what you just described would be nice. Also, when using url's that you parse out of this config file, a lot of people seem to have problems regarding white space with the url that causes problems later down the road. I suspect this may be happening to you. Be sure and do a trim on the url NSString's that you get out of your config file before your loadXML.
