I am running internet explorer 6 on windows xp, and
the following asp code (using localhost on IIS):
-----------------------

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<%

      Dim strXMLFilename
      Dim strXSLFilename
      
      strXMLFilename = "c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\OasisWebRedesign\settings.xml"
      strXSLFilename = "clientdisplay.xml"
      
      
      Dim xml
      Dim xsl
      
      Set xml = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
      xml.async = false
      xml.load(strXMLFilename)
      
      'Set xsl = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
      'xsl.async = false
      'xsl.load(strXSLFilename)
      
      Response.Write(xml)
      
      Set xml = Nothing
      Set xsl = Nothing
%>


... returns the following error:   (why is this?)


HTTP 500.100 - Internal Server Error - ASP error
Internet Information Services

'  Don't use Microsoft.XMLDOM!!  Old parser--not good for server.  Use MSXML 3 or 4

'    Version 3
'     Set xml = Server.CreateObject("Msxml2.DomDocument")
'    Version 4
     Set xml = Server.CreateObject("Msxml2.DomDocument.4.0")
     xml.async = false
     xml.load(strXMLFilename)

'    If you want to view XML, set the contenttype!
     Response.ContentType = "text/xml"

'     You can't write an object, you must write the xml property...which is why I name my xml objects xmlDoc...
'     Response.Write(xml.xml)  

'     But this is a MUCH better way.  Uses IStream:

     xml.save Response

Oh, and when you do the transform, don't use:

strHTML = xml.transformNode(xsl)
Response.Write strHTML

Use instead:

xml.transformNodeToObject  xsl, Response

Thanks, Mike.

Btw, do you know of any xsl validators?

I use XML Spy.  It costs money (the IDE is a lot less than the Suite, but they don't really point that out), but the best ones always do.  Xcelerator by Marrowsoft is good to.  Both have debugging.
