          did you try validating it?

          THis is what I get when I run it through
          The HTTP Content-Type header (text/xml) sent by your web server
          (Apache/1.3.26 (Unix) mod_perl/1.26 mod_throttle/2.11 PHP/4.1.0
          FrontPage/4.0.4.3 mod_ssl/2.8.9 OpenSSL/0.9.6f) did not contain a "charset"
          parameter, but the Content-Type was one of the XML text/* sub-types.

          The relevant specification (RFC 3023) specifies a strong default of
          "us-ascii" for such documents so we will use this value regardless of any
          encoding you may have indicated elsewhere.

          If you would like to use a different encoding, you should arrange to have
          your server send this new encoding information.

          Note: The Validator XML support has some limitations.

            The one above is an XSLT template, a browser can't render it.
            Are you trying to use XSLT client-side or leveraging a server-side language?


            I would guess you would like to format the data contained below using the
            XSLT template above:
            http://www.practicalcomponents.com/Local/ResultsReport-DRMLF.xml

            In such a case you should declare the XSLT inside the XML using something
            like:
            <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="drMLF.xsl"?>

            To see something like this in action look at:
            http://localhost/massimocorner/rss/news.xml


            I am not sure I am being helpful, but I need more info.

                Murray, I haven't really getting my hands dirty under the hood of XSLT at this point, I have meant to learn how it works, but I have put it off a bit.

                It looks like it is a good time for me to learn and analyze what went wrong.

                Say, Murray, did you take a look at sample Cafe Townsend as part of DW8 tutoring sample. Take a look inside some of the XSLT structure and the XML/XSL related topics as part of Cafe Townsend sample for people like you or me to play with and do some trail and error learning steps to make it work.

                What task are you trying to achieve this with your XSLT coding?

                  Ugh. Thanks, Massimo - what problems do you see there? It's a site search
                  result from DW.

                    I'm trying to display an XML file from the server.

                    So - just put this line inside the XML file?

                    <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="drMLF.xsl"?>

                      The strings inside <mm_displaystr> appears broken. It looks like an encoding
                      problem. Do you see them okay in a browser?

                        I'm trying to display the results of a saved sitewide search in DW. It's
                        saved as an XML file, and I thought it'd be fun to be able to display that
                        to the client from the web.

                          But who is supposed to perform the XSL trasformation, the browser or the
                          server? It looks like you would like to let the browser do the job, but I am
                          not sure

                          The line above is an instruction that sort of tell the browser: "Apply the
                          XSL transformation defined inside drMLF.xsl to the current XML file".

                            Heh - how would I know? I suppose I want the browser to do it.

                              Ahh - note that those are utf-8-type strings. They are from Japanese and
                              Chinese pages. Is that what you mean?

                                XML assumes utf-8 by default (unless otherwise stated), on my PC both IE and
                                FF tried to display those string using utf-8 and failed. Do you see them
                                okay?

                                            I just downloaded both the xml and xsl files, added this to the xml:
                                            <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="drMLF.xsl"?>

                                            Then opened the xml in a browser. You get something that start looking like
                                            an HTML page. Sure, the layout may get some improvements, but it's a
                                            starting point.

                                                I don't, but maybe I am just missing the proper typefaces.

                                                  That's possible. I did install a few extra fonts to see it. This is
                                                  strictly for the client's information - not public. You won't reveal the
                                                  link, will you? 8)

                                                  If you browse there now, you will see an ugly display of the search results.

                                                    BTW I just noticed that you have this line at the top of your XSLT:
                                                    <xsl:output method="html" encoding="iso-8859-1"

                                                    You may try changing the encoding to utf-8, since your are feeding the XSLT
                                                    template with utf-8 data.

                                                      Perhaps something special from Lindt? 8)

                                                      Have that and didn't even think to use it.

                                                          Agreed!

                                                              I always enjoyed my trips to Switzerland in the past. I am very fond of it! Three cousins and I did a skydiving a couple years ago in Switzerland. Boy, it was rather thrilling epxerience, but I wouldn't want to do skydiving again, though. However, I am glad that I did. I thought that I was having major heart attack. LOL But I never forget the majesty view of sky, mountains and fresh air!!!
