Well, it's not the java script.

The error message is telling. First:
 "Error loading..."
A hint that the parser had difficulties. This means: the XSL document is
not valid XML. As i suppose you don't validate, this means it is not
well-formed XML.

> Reason : A string literal was expected

Read carefully through the XML spec where string literals are expected...

Correct! It most likely means "Attribute values" here.

> ...but no opening quote character was found.

Ergo: you have an Attribute value which doesn't start with a " or ',
or in other words, there is an unquoted attribute. This is valid HTML
but not valid in XML (or XSL for that matter).

Now, after you discovered what the error message actually says, search
for /=[ ]*[^"']/ and you get the culprit:

                              ^^
There may be more of this kind of errors.
