RE: XSL and IE 5.0 : Nothin` works!
I think IE5 (b2) is pretty good for working with XML. Not sure about your XSL, but the reason you can't view the XML doc is 'cause you have </i> followed by </i> and so it is not well-formed. Try this.... <doc> <chapter1> <title>Chapter1</title> <para> Some text about chapter one. </para> <main_text> The <em>entire</em> story. </main_text> </chapter1> <chapter2> <title>Chapter2</title> <anytag>AnyText</anytag> <main_text> The <i>grand</i> finale bla. bla. </main_text> <para> Here the conclusion of the story. </para> </chapter2> </doc> Any joy?? PS. I have been working with XML Applications from Wrox press and I have found this book to be everything i'd hoped. Get that book - although. stuff is still changing out there, so you'll need to keep looking around ! Hope that's some help. Steven.
