Re: Namespaces and IE5.5 (not IE 5.0)

(Not > IE5.0) IE 5.5 ships with the same version of the MSXML toolkit as IE 5.0. If you want it to recognize the XSLT namespace and behave apporpriately for XSLT 1.0 code, you have to install the newer MSXML release and tell IE to use it. Easiest way to do this is to go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/webtechnology/xml/msxml.asp and download the May 2000 release, aka MSXML3 (note that a new one is due any day now), then run 'xmlinst' which will be in your Windows system32 directory. > I assume that it's because IE5.5 doesn't associate > "http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" with a namespace. The namespace is identified by the URI. The question is whether the URI is recognized as identifying a namespace that the XSL processor should do something special with, of if it should use the default behavior of treating elements in that namespace as it would any other literal result elements. > Question: How do I know specifically which namespace identifiers IE5.5 > "knows."

There is no new-to-IE5.5 functionality, as far as the MSXML component is concerned. -Mike XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
