Newbie XML Output question

Hi,

I was wondering if someone could help me with a problem I've been
having with mod-python and a javascript application I'm running.  When
I run a GET on the actual XML file from the javascript, I can easily
parse the file.  However, when I use a mod-python handler and run this
code:

LOCAL_FILE = 'htdocs/ethan/info.xml';

def get_request(req):
	if req.method == 'GET':
		req.content_type = "text/xml"
		req.sendfile(LOCAL_FILE)
		req.write(file)
                return apache.OK

The file is sent but the same code that parsed the actual file can't
parse what is sent through this request.  Is there some kind of special
formatting that is required to properly send back XML to a javascript
xmlhttprequest()?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Ethan
