XSL in IE5
Joshua, You seem surprised at people adversely commenting on Microsoft's support for XSL. But people on this list have been getting messages isomorphic to the one below most days, for a year. Would it be too much to ask that MS put a big flashing red warning on all their XSL pages warning newcomers that "XSL" in IE5 documentation does not mean the same thing as "XSL" anywhere else. So "working in xalan" is guarantee of the sheet NOT working in IE5 unless some other steps are taken, eg to update IE5 with msxml3. MSXML3 looks like it will be a fine product with full support for XSL but people looking at the XSL support pages at the microsoft web sites are not very clearly directed to it.

Now I added the line <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="file:///c:/myStyle.xsl" ?> below my <?xml version='1.0' ?> line in my XML document. when i open the XML document in IE 5, it should do the rendering based on the style sheet. But the result is a complete garbled up rendering. So what went wrong? My Style sheet should be OK as it works perfectly with Xalan. Also, since XSL is a standard, a style sheet which gets rendered properly from one processor should also get rendered properly by another processor. Is this a wrong assumption ? Someone, may ask that why do i need this.... Ok i try to find out whether the client browser is XSL enabled (IE 5, Netscape 6.0) if yes, then i'll give him the xsl and xml and let him to the processing. if he is not !! then i'll run my server side script (asp/jsp) to do the rendering. regards, Abhishek.
