transforming xml to xml
You can simply remove the processing instruction for the stylesheet and allow the browser's (IE or newer Netscape) default stylesheet to handle it. Alternatively, check out the following template for converting xml to html string representations: http://www.xmlportfolio.com/xml-to-string/.

I have a very simple question about transforming XML to XML. I have been using XSLT to transform XML to XHTML and displaying the result in Internet Explorer. I would like to do the same but with XML displayed in the browser. A search of the archives has not provided a satisfactory solution. Here is a simplified XML file, testdata.xml:

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="renewal.xsl"?>

Here is a copy of my XSL file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" indent="yes"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:apply-templates select="Data"/>

>From what I have read and from some of the examples I have seen, I would expect this to return an XML file exactly like the original document (testdata.xml). Instead it is displaying a string consisting of the text from the <car> elements, without the XML tags: ChevyDodgeFord. What am I overlooking?
