Re: msxml2: What can be used instead of <xsl:variable>
hello we all understand your situation, but we would be doing you a disservice if we suggest anything else. your options a) continue using ancient version b) provide a method of upgrading clients ancient means, broken, not to spec, etc.....we dont speak that here, its not even a dialect, its something completely different.... there is a code convertor listed at www.netcrucible.com that will convert xsl to xslt. there is a simple msxml sniffer at www.bayes.co.uk/xml and online installer, that could assist in upgrading your clients. you would be doing a disservice to your clients if u do not recc. a base client requirement that uses proper software. good luck, jim fuller ----- Original Message ----- From: "Dmitri Ilyin" <dmitri.ilyin@xxxxxxxxx> To: <xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, October 05, 2001 11:14 AM Subject: RE: msxml2: What can be used instead of <xsl:variable> > > > > -----Original Message----- > > From: Michael Kay [mailto:mhkay@xxxxxxxxxxxx] > > Sent: Friday, October 05, 2001 12:15 PM > > To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > > Subject: RE: msxml2: What can be used instead of <xsl:variable> > > > > > > > What can i use with msxml2 instead of <xsl:variable>??? > > > > > You can't.
