Hi

I wanted to know if IE is an XLink aware browser. I tried opening an XML file with XLink tags.
<books xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
xlink:type="simple"
xlink:href="books.xml"
xlink:show="replace"
xlink:actuate="onRequest" />

I was hoping I could test the above code, by clikcing the link and it would replace the current contents with books.xml, but there was no such link.
I tried it with XML Spy too. No luck.

Is there a special "XLink aware browser" where I can test my xlink.

thanks
Vasim

As far as I know there is no XLink aware browser that supports XLink

Mozilla is the only browser that has minimal support for XLink. And it
only works for Simple links and I am not sure if it supports all features
of Simple Links. You can try Znon.org for the tutorials on XLink. They have
simulated all the XLink features with Javascript(if i am rite!)

trying out the examples there can give you a good idea of how the
technology will actually work if implemnted by browsers !

Here is the example that works on Mozilla






And the example.xml file is




make sure that you have both the XMl files in teh same directory!!

Unfortunately IBM has the "magic wand" :roll: .. and I hope that they get it published ASAP
