Re: images and urls in xml


rob decker
Let me add, at worst, display it as text. At best parse and if there's a
stylesheet, transform it and if it knows how to render it, do so.

I think IE does the latter. So if you want to display an image, attach a
stylesheet that transforms the xml to an xhtml document that displays an
image.
