RE: IE browsers
First, there's a MSXML XSL FAQ at http://www.netcrucible.com/xslt/msxml-faq.htm It says that IE 5 and up has XSL in it. XML will not work under XSL without modification. I've tried. (And to be honest, I do not know if you can even install additional EXEs to get it to work.) IE 5, 5.5 comes with an early pre-recommendation version of XSL, namely "TR/WD-xsl". Consequently, your XSL will work but not all commands are available. To use the more interesting (and standardized) features of XSL, you will either have to update to MSXML 4.0 or go server-side. I can not comment on IE 6 because it is only in beta stage. But it is interesting that Microsoft does not make any mention of IE 6 supporting XML on their web site. They do advertise increased CSS and DHTML support though... (URL: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/preview/fault/default.asp ) I hope this helps. -----Original Message----- From: Rosa I-Ting Cheng [mailto:Rosa@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: August 22, 2001 10:36 PM To: 'xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' Subject: RE: IE browsers ok so just to get things a bit more clearer... XML works on IE browsers from 4 upwards right? then IE 4, 5 and 5.5 all require extra EXEs such as the SP1 and the xmlinst.exe etc to be installed for the XSL to work properly on them? then XSL only works properly on IE 6 without installing anyother EXEs? rosa -----Original Message----- From: Max Dunn [mailto:maxdunn@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, 23 August 2001 11:48 AM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: IE browsers IE 5.5 is no better than 5.0 with respect to XSLT. You need to install MSXML3 SP1 (This is available as one program including MSXML and the service pack) and xmlinst.exe to transform XML properly in IE 5.5.

(I downloaded the exes a while ago to work on IE5.5, and can't exactly remember their actual names) There was at a stage where after installing those 2 exes above, the browser still didn't work, and showed a PCDATA problem comment. So one of my colleagues found this xml3 sp1 which then made the browser work with XSL and XML. (by work I mean allowed the XML to be transformed and show meaningful info) so my question is: Is there anything I can add into the XSL/XML so that there is no need to install the MSXMLWR, xmlinst and the sp1? Or do I have to install all three and this is the only option?
