Dominiek ChristiaensSubject: encoding='windows-1252'

In order to avoid processing problems with special characters containing umlauts and accents (like in German and French), I use the encoding="windows-1252".
This works fine within Internet Explorer 5, and calling the Microsoft.XMLDOM object, but when I activate the Internet Explorer Processor (Microsoft Syntax) within Stylus, the processor still considers these special characters as invalid. Is Stylus not using the "Microsoft.XMLDOM" object for processing?

The problem is that Stylus is not passing through the encoding attribute on your source xml. Since windows-1252 will automatically work using Stylus' native parser and processor, I suggest not working in Microsoft mode. If you need to use Microsoft syntax, however, here's a workaround:

1) Click the external browser button above the preview pane. Choose View | Source in the newly-created Internet Explorer window.

2) Copy the (?xml:stylehseet...) line, and paste it just below the (?xml ... ?) line in your original xml document.

3) Load your original xml document in Internet Explorer. It will be pointing to the temporary xsl file that Stylus generates, as well as having your original encoding pi.

This workaround will be unnecessary in the next version of Stylus.
