This is the simple code:
var xml= new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
xml.async=false
xml.load("invoice.xml")
var xsl=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
xsl.async=false
xsl.load("invoice.xsl")
document.write(xml.transformNode(xsl))
The problem is that this does not work in Netscape, and I don't know why. There's postings about this everywhere, but no answers, can anyone help?
Also, what is a better way of doing things:
1. Using xml, dtd's and xsl to transform. With microsoft XMLDom or...
2. Use a java parser DOM, in a JSP or servlet.

Is that working in IE ? It may not work in Netscape due to vb script ??(not sure).
If you would like to user java, then u can download XALAN from apache, it has got example servlets to convert xml + xsl in to HTML, u can modify them to your needs.

Thanks for your response.
It's written in using javascript.
But yeah, any code examples using xalan, or any xerces info you have would be great.
Thanks
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
