But if you are depending on an IE5 feature, and it can style XML directly, then why drop down to HTML? That brings in the other XML-aware browsers, too. > I think I'll adopt the sort of process that I > think you are suggesting. Thanks. Your approach is certainly nicer and > actually displaying XML. I've not played with the CSS side of IE5 much since > the release but I believe that it has trouble resolving entities. That would be the XML part rather than the CSS part, entity management. Recall that you do not have a catalog file and that , unlike HTML, there are only four predefined entities. If you are used to authoring using a larger entity set, you could continue to do so and just declare them in the internal dtd subset at the start of the document. Or have XT declare them for you ;-) > Is that > still the case because it is a feature I need or does XT do that on > transformation to resultant XML? I bet it does. Sounds good. Do you have a test case that shows where entities are failing? -- Chris XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
