javascript in XSLT

P: n/a
Any clue on why I got this error when I use javascript function in
XSLT? The same javescript works fine with ASP. What this function
does is to keep only one window (with media player activeX control)
instance.

Your assistance is much appreciated.

Charles

In XML documents (such as XSLT files), "&" has a special meaning and needs
to be escaped (by writing it as &amp; or, probably better when including
scripts, enclosing the whole script in a CDATA section).
