Re: links don't work when IE transforms local XSL doc
What do you mean by "broken"? Do you mean that the page looks right butThe page looks right, and when I hover the links, the status bar shows the correct URL
(file:///C:/.../anchors.xsl#s2) but when I click on one of the links, IE shows its errorpage
"The page cannot be displayed" with error msg "Cannot find server or DNS Error"
It sounds like IE gets confused when you try to load an xsl document as!! Now there's a new element, and it becomes even stranger to me... I was pretty sure
that I had tested both cases, but now I see that the error only occurs if I load the xsl
from the local filesystem. So you're right: different results in the two cases.
I have put a testcase online so everyone who wants can try it out (same stylesheet I already posted earlier):
http://users.telenet.be/cking/webstuff/test/anchors/anchors.xsl http://users.telenet.be/cking/webstuff/test/anchors/test.xml http://users.telenet.be/cking/webstuff/test/anchors/test.xsl
If you open these links in IE, the anchors work. But if you download the files and display
the local copies in IE, they are broken (except for test.xml: that one works, although
it's exactly the same file as test.xsl, only the name is different). Apart from the broken
links, the pages look perfectly correct (CSS styles included).
If it is an IE bug, there could be an easy workaround, although youYeah I guess I could do that but in this particular case it doesn't help much; the whole point
of my xdoc experiment is to be able to just open a stylesheet in a browser to view it with its
documentation.. Well, it's not that important, I just wanted to find out what happens, and why,
and it seems more and more obvious that this is a bug in IE. Another reason to "get Firefox"?
(I really like Firefox, it's my default browser for quite some time already)
Alternatively, use the dummy source file without the url of the realHow can I pass parameters in IE (or in Moz, for that matter)? I always thought that's not possible..
I admit this is a bit strange, but if you actually are dealing with an IE bug, it might work, and it wouldn't be very hard to implement.
