If you are seeing xml then it isn't set up correctly. Look at the section Verifying installation ... visit http://localhost/xslisapi/samples/install/installtest.pasp. This tests dynamic XML generation and should result in text displaying that the installation is valid. Do you have a green arrow in the isapi filters property page? >2. is it sufficient to have just an xml file referencing an xsl file, or >do i need to write a bunch of asp code that instantiates a DOMDocument >object and so on? Yes. If you follow the installation directions correctly. That is one point of the filter that you don't need to do all that.
