The XML/XSL parser for IE5 (which goes Gold on the 18th March BTW), can be
run on the server-side, delivering HTML-like XML to any browser. All this
would require then would be changing your XSL stylesheet to something that
will run with the newer parser.

There are examples of the parser being used in this way at

Good luck.

Subject:  Outdated XSL, What are my options?

I have been using the MSXSL object
or using msxsl.cab to generate html file from my existing XML and XSL
document. However, I recently just found out that the Active X object is
of date. Now I have a XML file with an outdated XSL file which complies to
the early version of XSL protocol submitted in August 1997.
My program requires the user to go through a query form on the web. Upon
submission of the query, the ASP will start retrieving the necessary
information from the server which is in XML format. How could I still
maintain the program in web base and convert the XML and XSL together to
form the HTML for display on the internet?
Can I still continue to use the Active X Object? If not what are the ways I
could do it. I am currently still using IE4 and my company will not move
into IE5 util  a year or more later. What are my options available?
I know that I would have to re-write my XSL code. But after I am done with
that, what are the steps to take generate the html file through internet?
I heard about using DOM from the MS sitebuilder website.
Please advice.
