I'm trying to mirror a java program in C Sharp - part of the program is an XSL transformation of an existing XML document. The code I've been given for the java version is

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<dsig:Transforms xmlns:dsig="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#" xmlns:gt="http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/CM/envelope" xmlns:ir="http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/taxation/CISrequest">
<dsig:Transform Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-xpath-19991116">
<dsig:XPath>
count(ancestor-or-self::node()|/gt:GovTalkMessage/gt:Body)=count(ancestor-or-self::node())
 and count(self::ir:IRmark)=0
 and count(../self::ir:IRmark)=0
</dsig:XPath>
</dsig:Transform>
<dsig:Transform Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xml-c14n-20010315#WithComments"/>
</dsig:Transforms>

However when i try and load that into my CSharp transformer object I get an XSLT compile error

The XML document its transforming is

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<GovTalkMessage xmlns="http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/CM/envelope">
      <EnvelopeVersion>1.0</EnvelopeVersion>
      <Header>

      </GovTalkDetails>
      <Body>
            <IRenvelope xmlns="http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/taxation/CISrequest">

                                    <Line>Telford</Line>

                                    <PostCode>BD18</PostCode>

                              </Address>
                              <Telephone>01952123456</Telephone>
                        </Subcontractor>
                        <Declaration>yes</Declaration>
                  </CISrequest>
            </IRenvelope>
      </Body>
</GovTalkMessage>

the object of the XSLT transformation is to place the xmlns attribute of the GovTalkMessage in the body tag and extract the body tag then and its contents. Has anyone got any microsoft friendly XML to do this.

the XSLT seems to have some embedded java/javascript in it - this could be part of the culprit of your problem.

If that is indeed the problem then you will want to check out the MSDN tutorial on using msxsl:script:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/wxaw5z5e.aspx

if you are using the XslCompiledTransform method to load this you may need to note that the default REQUIRED namespace contained in the XSLT is http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform.

Please provide your expected output if this isn't correct.
