XslCompiledTransform load compile error

P: n/a
I am moving some code forward from .NET 1.1. I was able to load the XSL file
and perform the transform. The MSDN documentation looks like it should be
easy. But I get a compile error. Ideas ? How can I share my XSLT ( there
are 2 helper stylesheets, and I check that they are also available... the
loaded xsl makes reference to the helper xsl files. Where should I start
looking ?

// Load the stylesheet.
errBefore = "xslt.Load(XSLDocPath....);";
xslt.Load(XSLDocPath); // ERROR HERE

// Transform the file.
errBefore = " xslt.Transform(xmlDocPath....);";
xslt.Transform(xmlDocPath, outputFileName);

You need to show more context so that we know what types and values the
variables xslt and XSDDocPath have. Then tell us the exact and complete
error message and if it refers to the stylesheet show us the relevant
part of that.

System.Xml.Xsl.XslCompiledTransform xslt = new XslCompiledTransform();

// Load the stylesheet.
errBefore = "xslt.Load(XSLDocPath....);";
//xslt.Load(XSLDocPath)
xslt.Load(XSLDocPath);

XSLDocPath = type string and is a path like " C:\VersionTable.xsl"

The above code is within a try catch block and my error simply states
e.Message = "XSLT compile error."

What's odd is that the XSL worked fine in .NET 1.1

Here's the stylesheet and its 2 helper files (
include_VersionTableStyles.xsl and include_VersionTableHeader.xsl) - I dont
know of another way to let anyone see the XSL other than copy it here. Hope
this helps - Thanks

VersionTable.xsl:

Well then don't be so lazy next time and examine the thrown exception
chain yourself with the debugger or by changing that try/catch code.
What's odd is that the XSL worked fine in .NET 1.1
XML parsing has changed, lots of stuff that works with .NET 1.x for
security reason requires explict settings in .NET 2.0 to work.

VersionTable.xsl:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [
<!ENTITY nbsp " ">
<!ENTITY mdash "—">
<!ENTITY ndash "–"]>
One problem is the DOCTYPE declaration, the .NET 2.0 XML parser by
default gives an error on that, you have to explictly enable DTD
processing so you need code alike

XslCompiledTransform xsltProcessor = new XslCompiledTransform();
XmlReaderSettings settings = new XmlReaderSettings();
settings.ProhibitDtd = false;
settings.ValidationType = ValidationType.None;
xsltProcessor.Load(XmlReader.Create(@"VersionTable .xsl", settings));

to load that stylesheet.
