Re: Is there a way to display entities callouts in bot
Hi Wendell, Thanks for the help. I did try: also tried with the ascii values for the entity callouts as well and got the same results: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <?xml-stylesheet href="styles/mozilla.xsl" type="text/xsl"?> <!DOCTYPE chapter SYSTEM "dtd_files/userdoc.dtd" [ <!ENTITY mdash SYSTEM "—"> <!ENTITY ndash SYSTEM "–"> <!ENTITY sol SYSTEM "/"> <!ENTITY ldquo SYSTEM "“"> <!ENTITY rdquo SYSTEM "—"> <!ENTITY rsquo SYSTEM "'"> ]> <chapter id="T01"><title> Using text</title> <sect1 id="T01-01"><title>Overview</title> <para>The text text text — text text text .</para> <para>This chapter describes the following:</para> Opens fine in Mozilla and firefox, but errors when trying to open with IE6. Error I'm getting from IE6 Error while parsing entity 'rsquo'. Could not load '''. The system cannot locate the resource specified.

Yup: it's not the stylesheet that contains the entity that must be resolved, but the document. So your DOCTYPE declaration needs to be in the document. Just copy the same code to the top of your document, changing "xsl:stylesheet" to the name of your document ("root") element. Unfortunately (this gets me all the time) you have to have this in your document because, unlike IE, Mozilla doesn't read the external DTD subset (the part referred to in the SYSTEM or PUBLIC identifier). You can get around this by having the entity declaration in an internal subset (the bracketed part of the DOCTYPE declaration). You can perfectly well have both internal and external subsets, so your document could have <!DOCTYPE document SYSTEM "../DTD/document.dtd [ <!ENTITY mdash "—"> ]> <document>...</document> and it would work fine even though the mdash is declared twice. Declaring it in the stylesheet doesn't work because the declaration is needed when the source document, not the stylesheet, is parsed.
