RE: XML/XSL problems
Thanks Barton, That was it, 100% hit! I had the old URI pointing to the working draft. Boy this can get really complicated. Thanks for pointing me towards the XSL list. I will check it out right now.

You might try checking the > on-line version of Chapter 14 of the XML Bible at: > http://metalab.unc.edu/xml/books/bible/updates/14.html This is up-to-date with the October 8 draft. This may help you sort out other errors you might get. IE5's XSLT implementation is *very* out of date, so it (paradoxically) works with your stylesheets. One more thing: I suggest that you post subsequent queries about XSL to xsl-list. You can subscribe to it at http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list/ There are lots of folks there who can help. Plus, you will generally get a quicker response to XSL queries there because it is a list dedicated to XSL. Cheers, Barton xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
