[MarkLogic Dev General] Corona Questions

I'm running the latest copy (a few days old).

  I just found that when I do 
|http//myhost:8011/search?stringQuery=cat&outputFormat=xml | I now get 
back an xml file in the search results format  indicated in the 
documentation. That has got to be a good sign!!! :-) The only problem is 
that the "results" tag is empty. The meta tag also comes back but has 
all zeros.
This is the xml file as it comes back in the browser:

Note that the executionTime comes back with something like .01 if I 
leave off the "outputFormat=xml. So, that works if it thinks it is JSON.

Hope this offers some clues!
Thanks for the help!
