Just wanted to provide an update on this. After re-writing my Xerte piece, it is all working on localhost, and I have no reason to believe it won't work on my live server. I don't know what the problem was, but I made no changes to the code that received and parsed the response from the server. I didn't change much, the biggest change was using the native text entry response instead of a V2 component, but the problem wasn't with getting the text from the user (I use the email address to log in), it was the response from the server that wasn't recognized. 

It must be because there is a blue moon this month.  ;o)

It has to be something in my Xerte code. I am rebuilding the file, and so far the same code parsing code is working on localhost accessing the same PHP scripts. It must be something else in the file that is causing the problem. Yesterday afternoon I re-introduced the reading of the XML file and duplicating the quiz nodes. So far so good. Now I just have another database read (the first read checks to see if the user is registered for the course, the second read will get their current information an progress if they are registered -- maybe I should combine those two), then some interface changes and the final scoring / send results to the database. I think it will work, there must have been something corrupted in the original file somewhere.
