I'm atempting to use the PHPDocx 5.5 xmlapi with the following code samples and the page is returning blank. PHP 7 on a windows machine.  Any help in getting this to output a document would be great.  This is my first attempt at using the XMLAPI.

using the sample content.xml as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<pdx:document xmlns:pdx="" >
            <pdx:data pdx:dataId="" pdx:type="HTML"><![CDATA[<style>ul {color: blue; font-size: 14pt; font-family: Cambria}td {font-family: Arial}#redBG {background-color: red; color: #f0f0f0}table {border-collapse: collapse}</style><h1>The title of the HTML page</h1><p>A normal paragraph.</p><p class="heading2">This is a simple paragraph with <strong>text in bold</strong>.</p><p>Now we include a list:</p><ul><li>First item.</li><li>Second item with subitems:<ul><li style="color: red">First subitem.</li><li>Second subitem.</li></ul></li><li id="redBG">Third subitem.</li></ul><p>And now a table:</p><table><tbody><tr><td>Cell 1 1</td><td>Cell 1 2</td><td>Cell 1 3</td></tr><tr><td>Cell 2 1</td><td>Cell 2 2</td><td>Cell 2 3</td></tr></tbody></table>]]></pdx:data>
                <pdx:wordStyle pdx:styleType="tag" pdx:name="LightListAccent3PHPDOCX"><![CDATA[<table>]]></pdx:wordStyle>
                <pdx:wordStyle pdx:styleType="tag" pdx:name="Heading1PHPDOCX"><![CDATA[<h1>]]></pdx:wordStyle>
                <pdx:wordStyle pdx:styleType="class" pdx:name="Heading2PHPDOCX">heading2</pdx:wordStyle>



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<pdx:document xmlns:pdx="" >
        <pdx:output pdx:name="output" pdx:type="docx" />


and php file code:

require_once '../../classes/';

$docx = new XMLAPI('./Core/embedHTML/sample_2/config.xml');

Please run one of the included examples (XmlApi/Core/addText/sample_1 is the simplest one) using the PHP CLI mode or check your server log, it seems it's returning a 500 error, and post the output/error.
