    Try to create your Master Page from your Designer __ file/New/sharepoint content/ select asp.net / master type.



    Then, open site in designer / format/ master pages/ Attach your master page.

  • If you peek into the web.config for your WSS site, you will find a Safe Control entry for System.Web.UI.WebControls and TypeName="XmlDataSource". But by default, the attribute Safe is set to false as in Safe="False".

    Set that to True and you should be going good.
