XML w/ XSL in Firefox

I have an XSL file that I have created to format some XML files into a
viewable report for a browser. Viewing it locally I have no problems
in IE v6.0 or Firefox v1.5.0.1.

We plan on distirbuting the .xml files for our clients to view. So we
uploaded the .xsl file to our webserver (ex:
www.mydomain.com/xml/style.xsl) Then in the .xml files we updated the
style sheet reference from pointing to the local copy to the one on the
webserver.
was: <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="style.xsl "?>
now to: <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl"
href="http://www.mydomain.co m/xml/style.xsl"?>

After this change was made the .xml appeared as it should on any
machine that had a web connection when using IE. But it stopped
working when viewing with Firefox. Firefox just displays the raw data
as one string and when viewing the page source it appears just as the
xml file does.

In IIS I have setup .xsl as a registered file type using the content
type of "text/xsl". This did not fix the issue.

What am I doing wrong?

It may be a domain-crossing issue.

Try just using a local HREF from the XML to the stylesheet, rather than
an absolute one:

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="freddy.xs l"?>

This simple example certainly works for me in Firefox:

It is a security restriction, you can only load a stylesheet from the
same origin the XML file comes from.

I've got a 4-page form that lets users enter a whole lot of information, which is then submitted and emailed at the end. All the fields are stored as session data. The whole thing works fine: 1. On my local box (WinXP / Apache2 / PHP4) using IE6 2. On my local box using Firefox1 3. On my hosted server (RHLinux / Apache1.3 / PHP4) using IE6

I have a script that loops through an existing table list and prepares each href element node to trigger a function when an image is clicked.

In IE and Netscape, the property values pass correctly, but in Firefox, only the last property value in the list...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
